Odessa is the pearl of the sea! This summer, they chose for a long time where to go on vacation with a one-year-old child and unexpectedly decided to go to visit our son's godmother in Ilyichevsk, near Odessa. Why is it unexpected? Because to go from Donetsk to Odessa in a train is 15 hours, and earlier we have never traveled so far with a little son. It was a risky choice, because Son is very active boy and can not sit in one place. Fortunately, we arrived perfectly, the train had many children and he had someone to walk with. In my story, I will tell you about two cities at once - this is Odessa and Ilyichevsk. A little information about the city of Ilyichevsk. It is located in the south of Ukraine, on the Black Sea coast, 20 kilometers from Odessa, on the right bank of Sukhoy Liman; Is the youngest in the region. The city of Ilyichevsk is the largest commercial port of Ukraine, a large fishing port. The first few days of our vacation we spent on the sea, and in the evening went for a walk around the city. Overall impressions of the city were positive, the city is clean, with a developed infrastructure, lots of greenery, parks, cafes, shops.
