Vorontsovs’kyi Palace

  Vorontsovs’kyi prov. 2     more than a year ago
A magnificently reconstructed citadel located on the site of on an ancient Greek settlement and Turkish fortress, it suffered many devastating assaults and misfortunes. For example, on April 10th, 1854 an Anglo-French squadron bombarded Odesa. The palace and garden were hit by more than 200 cannonballs, one of which is still embedded in a wall on the ground floor. Next to the palace stands Vorontsovs'kyi Belvedere. Reminiscent of colonnades constructed in ancient Greece, it is especially stunning when viewed from the sea.
