Выходные по-одесски (Туры в Одессу)
Одесса – город контрастов, здесь удивительным образом уживаются утонченность архитектурных достопримечательностей с колоритностью рыбацких улочек. Симбиоз культурной жизни театров, пляжей и рыночной суеты придает этому городу особый, присущий только этому месту и знаменитый на весь мир, колорит. Для того чтобы в полной мере окунуться в атмосферу жемчужины Черного моря, необходимо увидеть:Оперный театр;Соборную площадь;Дворец графа Воронцова.
