Statue full of meaning, above all for families of the sailormen. Come in a sunny day and take a picture here, it's a perfect spot for that.

This is a nice monuments and if you think at the meaning of it, there is something special that you will feel. Located in the port, in the back of Odessa hotel. Good for a morning walk if you are in the area.

Nice sculpture situated in the port., It is a pity that an ugly hotel has been built at the same place.

The artistic merit of the statue is very good as what it represents, but the best part is how close you can get to the enormous cargo ships once down here at the docks, a pleasant walk with great working dock scenery with big cargo...More

It is a popular theme in harbour cities: the goodbye of the wife, usually with a child, to the husband, who is off maybe for several months out to sea. Sculptures depicting this scene can be seen in various places, for example in Greece. One...More
