Ukraine and Istanbul – Part 6

In July, 2011, Pat and I flew to Kiev, Ukraine, and boarded the Viking Lomonosov for a 12-day cruise on the Dnieper River to the Black Sea; then we flew to Istanbul, Turkey, for four days. In Part 6 we arrive in Odessa, an elegant city of terraced hills and landscaped parks. We travel along Primorski Boulevard to the Opera House and Potemkin Steps, and see street entertainers and musicians in the park. The next day we fly to Istanbul; you'll see getting there was half the fun!
