Museum, Monuments, Mega Mall at Greek Square in Odessa

6. February 2013 by Masha 0 Comments

 

Located in the very heart of Odessa, Greek Square is decorated with granite tile, flower beds, and flowing fountains. Sprawling buildings surround the largest square in the city and they are certainly worth checking out during your visit to Odessa girls.

 

For Greek culture and history, stop in the Filiki Etheria, or Society of Friends, a branch of the Regional History Museum. The Society of Friends was a secret 19th-century organization whose purpose was to overthrow the Ottoman rule of Greece and establish an independent Greek state.

 

The history of the creation, administration and activities of Filiki Etheria are on display. The exhibitions are a stirring tribute to the heroic revolutionary members of Odessa’s Greek community. You can enjoy excursions, lectures, thematic conferences and student oriented lectures.

 

For souvenirs and so much more, take a trip through the Athena shopping mall. At four stories tall, it’s one of the highest buildings in the historical part of the city with a variety of stores and a fabulous food court.
