Centralny Universalny Magazine (Odessa's "mall") & Orthodox Cathedral


Four stories of unrestrained Western capitalism

Centralny Universalny Magazine (Central Department Store)
(Abbreviated and known to Odessites simply as: "Soum")
(центральный универсальный магазин)
Pushkinskaya 72 (Пушкинская)

This large four-story department store's architecture and function is exactly the same as it was during the Soviet Union. The striking difference is what the department store holds today. All modern Western electronic gadgets, clothing, cosmetics, and house hold items can now be found in this department store. The prices tend to be higher than in the bazaar, but the service tends to be better, and it is less crowded.

Saint Illinsky Orthodox Cathedral (Ильинский собор)
Pushkinskaya 79 (Пушкинская)
Tel: 22-31-95
Tel/Fax: 22-40-73

Built in neo-Byzantine style with five arched gateways and a high blue belfry. It is a smaller but similar to the Saint Uspensky Orthodox Cathedral, located at Preobrazhenskaya 70 (Преображенская).
