  The monument to Richelieu on Primorsky Boulevard
by Klod5
 
 

Favorite thing: The architectural ensemble of Primorsky Boulevard attests to the high standards of Odessa architects. Designed as the compositional pivot of the city, the Boulevard runs along the sealine. The middle section of the Boulevard is occupied by the semi-circular square with the monument to A.-E.Richelieu in the centre. The buildings of the stock exchange and the Vorontsov Palace terminate the Boulevard on each end to form an integral balanced whole. The architectural rhythm of Primorsky Boulevard, enhanced by horizontal terraces, is interrupted by the vertical line of the grandiose Stairs terraces, is interrupted by the vertical line of the grandiose Stairs which were given the name of Potemkin.
