Odessa - Summer Capital of Ukraine



Odessa is 4th largest city in Ukraine with population about one million people. Although Ukrainians make up the majority of (57 percent) Odessa's inhabitants, there is also a very large minority of ethnic Russians (34 percent). Odesa - it's major seaport located on the northwest shore of the Black Sea. During the Soviet period it was the most important port of trade in the Soviet Union and a Soviet naval base. On January 1, 2000 the Quarantine Pier of Odessa trade sea port was declared a free port and free economic zone for a term of 25 years. In a rating of FDI Magazine Odessa ranked fourth in Europe for economic efficiency (Cost Effectiveness) and attractive business (Business Friendliness).

Odessa itself is known for its uniqueness, and one of its unique features is the local humor. City is known throughout the world for its art and culture and beautiful Opera House. It also is a major manufacturing, railroad, and cultural center and, with its mild climate, a popular resort. The beaches allow tourists to feel like they are in the Mediterranean. The most popular beaches of city is Lanzheron, Malibu, Otrada and Arcadia

No man is an island
/For whom the bell tolls/ by John Donne


No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manner of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee
.*


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/ol-lush.../299490?page=4

* These famous words by John Donne were not originally written as a poem - the passage is taken from the 1624 MEDITATION XVII, from Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and is prose. The words of the original passage are as follows:
Quote:
No man is an iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.
20s of the 17th century
