Top Of The Stairs

This square is at the top of the Potemkin Steps, one of the more famous Odessa landmarks.  The statue is of the Duc de Richelieu, who was the first governor of Odessa.  He got out of France in time to avoid getting his head chopped off and was welcomed at the Russian court.

The view of the passenger (cruise liner) dock is down the steps.  I think I have some better pictures of the steps later in the set.  Anyway, it was a beautiful, clear if windy day and we got to look around quite a bit.
