Lonely Planet review
An evening at Arkadia is a must when in Odesa and this is definitely the city's best place to see and be seen. Here you can play old-school arcade games, dress up like a tsar or tsarina for a photo op, or hang out in a variety of cafes, bars and clubs. If crowds aren't your thing, it might be worth paying 15uah to 30uah to enter the private Tropicana Club , where you can order cocktails from your chaise longue and use the pool.
Arkadia is easy to reach: take tram 5 from the tram stop near the train station, in front of the McDonald's on vul Panteleymonivska, to the end of the line via the lovely tree-lined bul Frantsuzsky, where the crème de la crème of Odesa's aristocracy lived in tsarist times. Enjoy the views of the old mansions and sanatoriums along the way. Public transport to Arkadia gets extremely crowded in the summer, so consider taking a taxi (around 40uah).
The crowds begin to thin out and the water gets cleaner as you head south to the area known as Bolshoy Fontan ; take tram 18 from the tram stop near the train station.
