It looked very famous, as everything was taking photos of the chair. I'm not exactly sure the significance of it. Just a random piece of art work / monument in the middle of the park.

A great, funny nod to the book and film, written by two guys from Odessa. It is surrounded by a lovely park with many other statues.

One of the longest queues you can find in a central part of Odessa is at this chair. People want to take a photo here :)

This monument consists of a bronze chair. You can sit on it and take a selfie. That is about it. Don't go out of your way but you will encounter it along the standard tourist walk!
