How to meet girls in Odessa, Ukraine
Summer is around the corner and you’re getting ready to travel to the Ukraine! If you want to spend your summer meeting new people, relaxing on the beach and having a wonderful time, Odessa is the summer destination for you!
In this guide I will show you how to meet girls in Odessa, what beaches you must visit, where to eat and how to enjoy the nightlife.
Welcome to Odessa
The old port city Odessa is the third most popular city in Ukraine and located at the Black Sea in southern Ukraine. It is known for its stunning 19th century architecture, the best beaches of Ukraine, great restaurants and of course beautiful Ukrainian women.
During the summer temperatures can reach up to 32 degrees Celsius, which makes the beaches of the Black Sea a great spot to cool down. With its own airport, Odessa is easy accessible by plane or by train. They have connecting flights almost daily from Istanbul or Kiev and is about 8 hours by train from the capital.
Meet girls in Odessa
I like to include some extra information about picking up Ukrainian girls in Odessa. If you are looking to meet a nice person, learn how to talk to girls in Odessa and treat them respectfully, then this blog is the right place for you. You will definitely find some good tips, which will increase your chances on finding an interesting date.
If your goal is to just party, drink and hook of with prostitutes in Odessa, I recommend you keep looking for information else where. I won’t discuss that topic on this blog.
The goal of GoDatingInUkraine.com is to make sure you meet Ukrainian Woman and successfully built a good relationship.
Have fun, talk and act like a gentleman and show genuine interest when talking to Ukrainian women. You might not find your perfect match right away, but you always make some amazing local friends. And who knows, their friend might be the one!
This is the best investment you will ever make. Period!
It is no joke that you increase your chances by at least 80% of meeting wonderful girls if you speak some basic Russian sentences. It is a real eye opener and ice-breaker when they hear you make an effort and they will love you for it. Don’t be this cocky western (..) who thinks his English will be enough and expect all of them to speak it perfectly.
Invest a few USD and learn basic Russian in just 3 days. I loved this method and I got basics down in just 48-hours. Of course I practiced intensely with the Ukrainian girls, but they really liked that I made an effort and the course is really easy to follow.
Will you be able to discuss politics Russian? Nope
What about explaining the meaning of life? Hell no!
But you will be able to order food in a restaurant, ask how she is doing, what kind of work, what kind of drink she would like etc etc. Quick and simple sentences that you use several times per day, instead of boring difficult words you will never use in real-life?
Don’t believe me? I did a University course in Russian and guess what the first word was in the textbook?
I will let you think about it.
It was : Palm tree!
Now when on earth will you ever use the word “Palm tree” in Russia or Ukraine? How about never?
Therefore, I quit the course after the first day, did my research online and found the Michael Thomas method. Trust me, it is the best course on the market today!
Dress to Impress – Under $100
Make sure you have the right outfit with you when you go on your date. After a nice day on the beach you do not want to show up for your evening date in your board shorts and flip-flops. You will fail instantly!
Ukrainian girls like fashion, therefore it is important that you have a few nice outfits with you. Let me show you how to select the right clothes and make a great first impression for less than $100.
Button Down Casual Shirt
Get two variations. A light color (white and/or blue) and a dark one (black)
Get some nice relaxing jeans. One casual and one more neat.
Start meeting people before your travels
Before you visit Odessa adn you do not know anybody yt, I recommend you check the following applications and start meeting people.
It is a good idea to already have some friends, which can show you around when you arrive.
UkraineDate is one of these applications and is highly recommended as it was one of the few sites that does requires a double-check when submitting your profile. That means you will know for sure that all profiles are legit and you won’t be scammed. Anoter great benefit is that they offer their services in French & German.
If you don’t know anybody in Odessa, go check for as many social activities as possible. Ask your hotel receptionist for more details as they know all the hotspots and events of the city.
The beautiful beaches
Visiting the beaches is a great way to meet girls in Odessa. With the political situation on Crimea, Odessa has quickly been developed into the number one hotspot for foreign and local beach visitors.
Of course you want to know what beaches are popular and where the good spots are? Let’s find out!
The Lanzheron Beach is one of the oldest beaches of Odessa. It is also located closest to the city center and the big port of the city. You do not pay any entrance fee, but if you wish to rent an umbrella and sofa you will need to pay.
Surrounding the beach area you will find some great small local restaurants. If you want to try the Ukrainian cuisine with a nice sea breeze, this is the place to be.
Located between Lanzheron and Dolphin Beach, Otrada beach is a beautiful small little beach. It is very popular under the locals, but less with the tourists. The entrance fee is for free and most activities include boat and catamaran rentals, which will allow you to explore the beautiful coastline of the Black Sea.
It is on walking distance from the city center, but there are also several tram and bus services that can take you there. Taxi is around 50 to 75 UAH and takes about 10 minutes to get there. You can access the beach with a cable car!
Dolphin beach (you guessed it) is located right next to the Nemo Dolphinarium. This beach is part of the Nemo Resort and has a big pool and a luxury beachfront for its guests. There are a few small beaches on the side, but if you want the luxury you need to pay for entrance at the hotel reception.
This is my favorite beach. It is not as busy as Arcadia Beach and not so expensive as Dolphin Beach. You will find several nice little beach bars, which provide seats and umbrellas for 200 UAH per person.
The food is great, cheap and very tasteful! They also serve a lot of different cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. A perfect place to relax and meet new people without being overwhelmed by the massive crowds or busy bars.
From the city center you will need a taxi to get to the famous Arcardia beach. The cost is around 75-100 UAH and it takes about 20 minutes to get there. Once you arrive you will see a big entry sign that says “Arcadia Beach”.
Here is where the boulevard starts and where all kinds of restaurants and activities are present. The activities include a carnaval, water park, gyms, bars and restaurants, but also a lot of nightclubs. If you want to have a good time in the evening, this is the place to be!
What beach do I recommend?
It really depends on your situation. If you already met a girl or have some friends then I would highly recommend Caleton Beach. It is a bit more calm, not extremely busy and has a more relaxed vibe to it compared to Arcadia Beach. The perfect please to get to know each other and have some quality time together.
If you still need to meet people then Arcadia Beach is good place to star. They offer so many parties and activities that it would be hard not to meet people there. You can enjoy the lounge clubs during the day, but also have a pretty active nightlife.
The city center of Odessa
I love the old-town of Odessa. I really do! This place is full of beautiful architecture, great shops, top quality restaurants and all for a very affordable price. I always prefer to stay in this area of the city, as the beach hotels/resorts can get very crowded and overall I like the quality of food better in the city center. Also, after a long day sunbathing you might want to experience some Ukrainian culture instead of the beach area.
Especially when you are going out with two beautiful Ukrainian ladies!
Remember, now you need to get your A-game on and make sure the night runs smoothly. Don’t worry, it is not as difficult as it looks, but if you need some more tips: Do’s and Don’ts when dating Ukraine women.
Where do you go to eat?
There are many great restaurants and bars in Odessa. You will need to ask your dates what they like to eat and then do your research on where the best restaurants are. Keep in mind that it does not have to be the most expensive or exclusive restaurant, but just make sure it fits your budget. Here are my top 3 restaurants in Odessa.
Location: Town Square – Across the McDonald’s
Menu: Click here
Description: I love a good steak, therefore the Steakhouse Odessa is a logical choice. This restaurant has amazing quality meat for a very affordable price. The decoration is also very suitable for a romantic night out and she will definitely be impressed with your taste for quality. I normally eat here for about 35-40 USD for 2 people, which includes: 2 starters, 2 main courses, 1 side-dish to share, 2 glass of wine, 1 large bottle of water and 1 dessert.
Location: Town Square – Across the McDonald’s – Next to Steakhouse Odessa
Menu: Click here
Description: This Victorian-styled restaurant is located right next to the steakhouse. Although, I normally get breakfast or lunch here they also have an excellent selections of foods for dining.
They offer a lot of Western dishes, but with a unique twist! I recommend eating the croissant breakfast here as it is simply amazing. It is a little cheaper than Steakhouse Odessa and I spent on average 30-35 USD here for an evening out.
Location: Next to Opera House Odessa
Menu: Not available
Description: This cute small British type restaurant is perfect if you just want to relax with a drink and a delicious piece of cheesecake! With an overview over the gardens and the Opera House, it is the perfect place to go after dinner and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is a bit smaller, therefore I do recommend making a reservation as it can get very busy.
The Nightlife of Odessa – Bars or Nightclubs?
Odessa has a very active and interesting nightlife during the summer months. The city offers a wide variety of activities, including night markets, live music, carnavals, parades and of course nightclubs, strip bars and disco’s.
If you already have a date I would recommend you stick to the more calm activities and make sure you are able to have a conversation. If you are still looking to meet girls in Odessa, then the nightclubs and disco’s of Arcadia are the place to be.
You were not lucky to meet new people yet, but a visit to a nightclub can definitely increase your chances to meet girls in Odessa. Most of the large nightclubs can be found at the beach area, but there are also a few in old-town Odessa. You probably already know how difficult it is to talk to girls in general when you are in a nightclub.
I recommend you go together with friends or people you have met before and just enjoy your time in the club. It will make you less creepy when standing all alone and you won’t get bored if you have no luck that evening. Hey, nobody said it was going to be easy, but it is all part of the game after all!
Here is an overview of the two most popular nightclubs:
Ibiza Beach Club
Location: Arcadia Beach
The Ibiza Beach Club is the most famous nightclub of Odessa. The ant hill shaped bar is entirely outdoor and is located at the and of the boulevard at Arcadia Beach. The large stage has live music, competitions, dancers and much more. If you are looking for well-known artists, DJ’s and others this is the place to be.
It is so popular that it even has its own TV Channel on the local TV, which has a live broadcast in the club. The type of music is mostly house and techno and the stage is always filled with exotic dancers and lot’s if flashy lights and decorations.
Make a reservation beforehand for a table as it can get very busy in the summer months.
Itaka Club Arcadia Beach
Location: Arcadia Beach
The Itaka Club is located right next to the Ibiza nightclub and is the 2nd most popular club and a great place to meet girls in Odessa. The club has a Greek style theme that makes you think you are partying on Mouth Olympus between the Greek Gods! It is similar to the Ibiza Nightclub when it comes to the music, amount of people and events during the summer.
