Potemkin Steps

Potemkin steps
 
Built in 1837, the Potemkin Steps are the best place to view the busy harbor and the bay. The Steps with the monument to Duke de Richelieu on the top are one of the beautiful and the most referred in writing symbols of Odessa. There were few writers who visited Odessa and refrained from writing about the stairs, so prominent and captivating they have always been.
Looking down from the top, the steps themselves become invisible, only the landings can be seen. On each side of the stairs there is a stone parapet, and the two appear to run parallel. This, however, is an optical illusion because in reality the width of the stairs of the bottom flight is double that of the top flight.
There is the city’s passenger ship terminal at the bottom of the steps.
