Monument To Catherine Ii - Review

Built in the year 1900 by the architects Y.M.Dmitrenko and Donato Barkalaja, the monument is dedicated to Empress Catherine the Great, who ordered the construction of the city. It is also dedicated to the people who played an important role in building the city in the early years. The sculpture of the empress is 3 meters high and four of her companions, Potemkin, Zubov, de Ribas and de Wollant, surround her. The column is made of red granite and the square around the monument has been planted with a green lawn and flowers and made to look as pretty as it did a hundred years ago! The unveiling of the restored statue in 2007 was a matter of some minor controversy as the empress is now considered by some people as an enemy of the Ukrainian people.

  • This grand monument dedicated to Catherine the second, the Russian Empress and the main figure in the birth of Odessa as well it dedicated to Odessa important personalities . Monuments on this site are changed in accordance with the regime, but to date, the monument returned to it's former original form.

  • Very nice place. Worth visiting

  • One of the most Historic and beautiful places in Odessa located at the beginning of Ekaterininskaya street. Must see and visit especially on a sunny day or in the early morning. Very popular among locals. Has good views on architecture and sea port.

  • Cool place, interesting story about this place. Wrong planning, there is no walkway to it, so can't cross to visit it without violation of the wall. (that's ok for Ukraine I think) :D

  • Right in the center of Odessa overlooking the famous Stairs.
