Dumskaya square

Dumskaya square


Dumskaya square is surrounded by neoclassical buildings, among which City Council stands out for its beauty. From the square encloses a majestic view on the port of Odessa.

The square was originally planned as a pit, so it was decorated with statues of the god of trade Mercury and the goddess of fertility Ceres. The facade is decorated with a colonnade, on which stands the famous town watch. On both sides of the watch - the statue of two women, one of them symbolizes the day, the other - the night.

Next to the City Council there is a cannon, that was taken from the English frigate "Tiger", which attacked the city during the Crimean War and cast aground.

A monument to the poet Alexander Pushkin, surrounded by four fountains, always attracts tourists and locals strolling along Primorsky Boulevard Odessa.
