History Boulevard Zhvanetskogo
Earlier, before 2009, boulevard called Boulevard Zhvanetskogo Arts, as there is an exhibition hall of the Odessa branch of the Union of Artists. The decision to rename the boulevard was made in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Honorary Citizen of Odessa - satirist M. Zhvanetskogo.
