My native city is Odessa.
Odessa! The pleasant sound of this world brings a warm smile to one's lips and rays of sunshine to the soul.Who had not
heard of "Mother" Odessa?Surrounded by the beauty of the sea and abounding with secret legends,Odessa is on everyone's lips.
It seems as if the city has always stood on the shores of the Black Sea,evolving from it in ancient times,just like the
ancient goddess Aphrodite.There is simultaneously so much truth and so much fantasy surrounding Odessa,that it is difficult
to understand her real character and nature.
Her hospitality is so boundless that everyone who comes here thinks she belong of them.And those who have lived here for
centuries affirm in one voice-our Odessa,"Odessa-mommy"! Neither nationality not religious belief plays any role.There is
only one proud name-an Odessavite!
