Great mkamionka 2022-05-03 2:35

Hi Paul,
What I did is I typed in Google Image search the key words "Odessa big building". This building came as the first, maybe because coincidentally the word BIG is part of its name, it is Big Moscow Hotel (Bolshaya Moskovskaya Hotel).
It seems it underwent a major renovation in 2012:

"Restoration of facades with construction of two new floors above. reconstruction of the existing and now lost decoration and complete replacement of interior walls in a metal frame. The building is divided into three major functional parts: a hotel, retail premises, bars, restaurants. The building was constructed in 1898-1899, by architect L.L. Vlodek and sculptors T.L. Fischel and S.I. Milman."

so if someone visited before, like emka (2010) or holmertz (2011), they may have missed it.

This is the last photo which I found in your Ukraine gallery under which I didn't leave my comment before...

I wonder whether Russians would spare this structure taking into account its name...

You are so lucky you have visited all these places before the war. Great reportage,

Thanks Craig,
I thought saying that the destination is a skerry would be enough of a clue that this is lake ice.
