Let's Odesa. A tourist app in Odesa is implemented for grant funds

For several months in a row, a tourist app for city guests and residents of Odesa with unique tourist destinations is being developed.

The Grant office “Odesa 5T” received a grant for the implementation of the project “Digital Cultural Routes. The instrument for the development of the tourist sector ». In winter, a tender was submitted to the Ukrainian Cultural Fund, which passed all stages of selection and as a result received a grant for the implementation of the project. The project provides the creation of an app with cultural routes and unique characters that represent portraits of Odesa residents.

The app will feature digital characters that will become local friends for tourists.

How it works?

• The user downloads the app from the App Store or Google Play Market

• Choosing the character according to his interests and criteria

• Walks around the city along the route suggested by the character

• Each character has its own interests, attractions, and mysteries.

Also, the user will be able to open the map separately and go to cultural, tourist and tasty places recommended by Odesa residents.

The app will include architectural monuments, cultural sites, museums, theatres, hotels, cafes, restaurants, photo zones, creative locations.

Let’s Odesa app already has its own logo, brand book of designed characters, routes and many points on the map. It is a convenient tool for acquaintance with the city, promotion of cultural, historical and tourist areas of Odesa.

The project is implemented within the partnership program "Culture. Tourism. Regions ”of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, USAID Competitive Economy Program of Ukraine (CEU) and the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Development Office (SME.DO) under the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine.
