Odessa, Ukraine

Odessa (Ukr. Odesa) is quite a young city for Europe; it was founded in 1794 by Catherine the Great, when the Russian Queen decided her empire could use a port on the Black Sea. The population is about one million people. Odessa is the fifth-largest city in Ukraine and its city. Odessa is a port city and the most important trading, cultural, scientific, and resort center in the Northern Black Sea region. Odessa is also a naval base and the home port of a fishing and an antarctic whaling fleet.

Odessa is situated on terraced hills overlooking a small harbor. The weather in Odessa is mild and dry with average temperatures in January of -2 C (29 F), and July of 22 C (73 F). Odessa averages only 35 cm (14 in) of precipitation annually.

The city is said to occupy the site of an ancient Miletian Greek colony (Odessos, Ordyssos, or Ordas) that disappeared between the 3d and 4th cent. In the 14th century the site, then under Lithuanian control, became a Crimean Tatar fortress and trade center called Khadzhi-Bei. In 1764 it passed to the Turks, who built a fortress (Yenu-Duniya) to protect the harbor. It was captured by the Russians in 1789.

Odessa has a university (est. 1865), an opera and ballet theater (1809), a historical museum (1825), a municipal library (1830), an astronomical observatory (1871), an opera house (1883-87), and a picture gallery (1898).
