The Independent: Odessa is the second most “intriguing” city in the world to visit in 2022


Odessa one of the top 9 cities in the world for travel in 2022. The must visit list was compiled by the influential British publication The Independent.


According to the newspaper, Odessa is one of those cities that the newspaper’s correspondents plan to visit this year and advise all tourists to do so.

Odessa was in second place, behind Vienna. Behind it, the most attractive cities for travel are Chania (Crete), Naples (Italy), Paris (France), Seoul (South Korea), Kaunas (Lithuania), Oslo (Norway) and Split (Croatia).

Such interest in Odessa arose thanks to the opening of direct flights Odessa-London. In particular, on March 27, the Wizzair low-cost airline will connect the Ukrainian city with London’s Luton airport.

In addition, Odessa attracted the British with its beautiful architecture and location on the seashore. The British also consider low prices for accommodation in Odessa hotels and transport as an advantage.

Stay in a well-appointed early 20th century hotel where prices are very good at around £ 60. To get to the city from the airport, take trolleybus number 14, which costs about sixpence, which is the cheapest airport connection in Europe. It used to be difficult to get a visa, but now you only need a passport.
