It is not exist. It is just regular building. Maybe in the past it was some wall, but now nothing to see. Don’t go there, it is waste of time.

It is a gimmick but one that is a popular site that has to be seen by visitors to Old Odessa. Plaint to see that behind the facade, there are functioning flats.

Already passed it twice before i noticed it, from the correct side this building plays tricks with your mind and makes it look like it only has one wall. It looks mysterious at night.

Also known as the Flat House or the One Wall Building, the Devil's House, the triangular structure of the buidling gives the odd illusion. The original owner did not have enough money so one wall was never built, the shape of the building changing.

Nice place to take some photos. When I was there some construction works took place, it was a bit distracting.

Stand on a particular spot in this street and you will swear the classical building opposite is but a mere facade. Until you move a metre to the left that is. Quirky and amusing.

An interesting building which looks to have just the one wall until you walk around the side. Worth making a detour to see.

I did not see any signs pointing towards it but if the Ekaterina statue is behind you and you are walking towards the Potemkin steps, turn left onto a quiet side streets, keep walking for 2-3 mins and it is on your left hand side....More
