Square-shaped city courtyards, represent visual remains of old Odessa life in 19th century. Due to lack of many communications, and other specific living conditions, Odessa courts became some sort of scene for numerous literary characters and movie heroes. As a result some of Odessa tours go exclusively through the city courtyards. Such places not very noticeable in official travel guide books, brochures, or advertisements in Internet.
