The new #flyKRK connection – Odessa – is the second connection from Kraków Airport to Ukraine. From December passengers can travel to the capital of the country, Kiev, choosing the flights operated by Ukraine International Airlines.
Odessa International Airport is located 7 km southwest from the city centre. Since 2014, the terminal in Odessa has been undergoing thorough upgrading works. The new arrivals/departures terminal was opened in 2016.
Odessa is called the Pearl of the Black Sea and it is a city where everyone will find something for themselves. The number of sunny days exceeds 290 and the old town is buzzing with life around the clock. You cannot get bored here. It is worth visiting the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theatre or attending a concert at the Odessa Philharmonic Hall. Don’t forget about the Archaeological Museum. One of Odessa’s most iconic symbols are the Potemkin Stairs. The stairs are considered a formal entrance into the city. People who love to relax at the seaside will enjoy the sandy beaches and dolphinarium. You can find shelter from the summer heat in the City Garden built at the turn of the 18th and 19th century. It is worth purchasing a OdessaCard, which entitles you to many discounts for museum entrance fees and public transport tickets.
