Odesa should have large flows of tourists all year round – Andriy Sadovyi

365 days a year instead of 45. High-quality communication by all modes of transport and various events held every week will create a steady tourist flow to Odesa throughout the year.

How to increase the tourist potential of the port city – a candidate for the post of President of Ukraine Andriy Sadovyi shared his experience during his working visit to Odesa.

“Odesa in winter has its own charm and its special atmosphere, but they must be opened for Ukraine and the world. The first step is the transport accessibility of the city. First of all, we need to make possible at the state level a high-quality flight connection. There must be regular flights to Odesa from Uzhhorod, Lviv, Vinnytsia, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhia. And not only from Kyiv, the way it is now,” explains Andriy Sadovyi.

The politician adds that at the same time it is necessary to build new, high-quality concrete roads and develop high-speed rail links.

“There should also be interesting events and conferences taking place in Odesa every week. The whole country should be talking about business activity in Odesa. Because it is all very well just to come and see the sea, but there should be permanent, recurrent events as well. There should be creativity in this. There should be synergy, joint work of city authorities, business, public and scientific environments. Then much more could be done,” noted Sadovyi.
