Modern Odessa

Nowadays the city of Odessa, with a total population of 1,050,000, is the capital city of Odessa region. Odessa in conjunction with its satellite towns of Ilyichevsk and Yuzhny, forms an important port and industrial complex and one of the largest urban conurbations on the entire Black Sea coast. It is strategically located on one of the shortest and most convenient waterways leading from Northern and Central Europe to the Middle East and Asia through the Rhine and Danube river and canal system. This system, together with such waterways as the Dnieper, Dniester, and Volga-Don rivers combined with the three large ports of Odessa, Ilyichevsk and Yuzhny and the Odessa railroad provides a unique opportunity for the economic processing of transit cargo traffic and passenger flows. Odessa is a leading center of learning and culture with many secondary, higher education, and training institutions. It is also a major resort area. The economic profile of Odessa is dominated by the activities of the three major ports, but in addition to this there are industries such as: ship repairing, machine tool manufacturing, food processing and textile industries. Ilyichevsk runs the largest fishing fleet in Ukraine.

Among the great cities of the world, Odessa can claim certain distinctions. One of the major cities of contemporary Europe, Odessa, officially founded in 1794, is among the youngest ones. No other European city can match such growth rate in the 19th century. It also developed in an area of the continent that has an ancient tradition of trade and a long, though discontinuous, history of urban settlement.
