I think every visitor to Odessa has a least one photo of themselves sitting with this statue. His nose has been rubbed shinny from theattentions of visitors

Situated at the entrance to the City Garden from where all the city tour buses leave. Almost nobody goes away without taking a picture on the bench wit Utesov. Very nice.

Leonid Utesov was a very famous singer at his time and till today. So for people that remember him and his songs it's a cool thing to take picture with him. He is a part of Odessa.

Worth a visit... definitely worth taking a seat next to him and getting a picture taken. There are other statues and sculptures of interest nearby.

We were on a walking tour and could hardly see this monument due to the hoards of people lining up for photos. The story behind the monument was quite lovely though. Nice spot to sit -if you can get there before the tourists!
