This coin commemorates Odesa Oblast, which is Ukraine`s gateway to the sea. This maritime area lies at the crossroads of the most important international waterways: the Danube, the Dniester and the Dnipro rivers. Odesa Oblasts is a highly developed industrial region, in which the marine sector plays a key role. This sector has a complex cross-sectoral structure and covers various economic activities. Odesa is also known internationally for the fine traditions of its winemakers. This area is also rich in springs of healing mineral water, such as Kuialnik mineral water, which has important balneologic properties. The oblast`s sea resorts are among Ukrainians` most favorite.
