Criminal Odessa (Moldavanka) is an unusual and, at the same time, favorite tour among all. It has long been a must-visit on the list. Those who didn’t visit Moldavanka – did not really see Odessa from the inside! Once it was the outskirts of the city, where mostly poor people settled. That’s why the architecture of this area also differs from the center – here you will mostly see modest one- and two-storey houses with courtyards and wells. At the beginning of the XIX century, gangs involved in smuggling goods, started appearing here. So, the area itself became known as the most criminal one in Odessa. During the tour you will find out who Mishka Yaponchik, Yashka Blumkin, Karabas and Kotovsky were, visit the “raspberry” and hear stories about the legendary adventurer Sonka the Golden Hand.
