Odessa. Monument of Duke de Richelieu

Our webcam captures one of the first monuments of Odessa. The bronze Monument of Duke de Richelieu is located above the Potemkin Stairs. During the eleven years of his administration, importance and size of the city increased greatly, and Odessa became one of the major seaports and transportation hubs. Monument was opened in 1828, 6 years after the Duke’s death.

Monument faces the Black Sea and Primorsky Boulevard, and is one of the most visited attractions of the city.
