Potemkin Steps or else Potemkin Stairs is a gorgeous landmark sight of Odessa and a monument of architecture of the second half of the XIX century. The top of the staircase lies right at the footing of the Statue of the Duke of Richelieu and opens a breath-taking view over the seaport, the harbour and the Odessa bay.
The Steps were designed as a convenient connection between the harbour and the city that is nested on top of the high steppe plateau. Extending to 142 meters the Steps are considered a grand entrance to Odessa from the seaward. Thousands of visitors each year take it as a must to challenge all 192 steps of this remarkable architectural sight.
