Day One - Arrive Odessa, Hotel Check In, and Exclusive Cocktail Reception
After you have settled into your hotel, we’ll welcome you to our beautiful city with an exclusive cocktail party at the birthplace of Naked&Funny. You’ll see where it was conceived, and where it’s still written, cast, planned, filmed, and edited. Yes, you’ll enjoy playing an actual part at the show’s headquarters – where you’ll get to meet the creators, writers and producers during a warm and welcoming cocktail reception. After that, you can take a short walk to the beautiful city center and if you wish you can have some fun at one of the great local night clubs, dancing the night away with Odessa’s famously attractive nightclub enthusiasts.
Day Two - Guided Walking Tour of Odessa and Casting at the Studio
Walking Tour of Odessa
One of Odessa’s excellent local guides will give you a short but fun (2 hour) walking tour of the city, showing you the most famous historical sites plus many hidden gems that only the locals know about. You’ll learn about the city’s famous architecture and see the National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet. The guide's enthusiasm for their home town really brings the city to life and gives you an insight that travel books can’t ever match.
You’ll then make your way to the studio complex where you’ll enjoy lunch and witness an actual casting process for new episodes of Naked&Funny. Afterwards, you’re welcome to do whatever your heart desires for dinner or nightlife — or sleep!
Day Three - Guided trip to Dnestrovsk Fortress, Shabo, Arkadia Resort
The Dnestrovsk fortress is one of the oldest towns in Ukraine. It is an absolutely stunning complex which once seen is never forgotten. Dating from the 6th century, A.D., many visitors are so taken with the fortress, they come back again and again!
Shabo Wine Culture Center & Wine Tasting
Next you’ll visit the amazing architecture, museum, tasting rooms and vineyards of Shabo Wine Culture Center for a tour and a sampling of the outstanding wines being produced there. Viticulture in the region goes back over a thousand years and the Shabo Complex dates back to the mid 1800’s when Swiss vintners founded the center in this fertile vineyard land. In April of 2011, Shabo was awarded “the Discovery of the Decade” and in September of the same year, it was declared part of the “Cultural Heritage of Europe” by the Council of Europe.
Evening in Arkadia Resort
A night in Ukraine’s fun-filled Ibiza or Cancun-style beach scene. If you like a good time, Arkadia and its clubs, beaches, booze and beauties might be just the thing!
Day Four - Swim With Dolphins, Film With The Pros!
Swim With Dolphins!
Day four brings more fun at the studio as well as more touring of our remarkable city, but first, what better way to wake up than to visit the amazing Odessa Dolphins in the morning? We will bring you to the Odessa Dolphinarium, before continuing our city tour. There you can watch these magnificent intelligent creatures interact and perform for you, or, if you wish, you can actually swim with them! (For a modest additional cost. Swimming with the dolphins is not included in the Naked&Funny tour fare).
Lunch/Filming at the Studio
Next on the schedule is lunch back at the studio where you’ll get to see exactly what goes into the making of a Naked&Funny show. You’ll even get the chance to participate in an actual shoot! Yes, you’ll be able to decide whether you want to be a ‘set up’ person or one of our ‘lucky victims’! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity you definitely won’t want to miss. After the filming, you’ll be free to further explore the city however you’d like.
Day Five - Ukrainian Style Day - Catacombs, Ukrainian Village!
Guided Tour to Odessa’s Famous Catacombs
This is a rather wild and unusual event — a visit to Odessa’s famous catacombs. Test your claustrophobia in this vast and not entirely mapped out network of limestone tunnels running under the city!
Visit a Ukrainian village
Here’s your chance to get to know true Ukrainian village culture. We’ll take you on an unforgettable experience as you get to know the locals and their various rural traditions in a genuine Ukrainian village. We’ll visit a typical Ukrainian house — or “khata” — where you’ll have the chance to taste traditional local cuisine made of homemade products, made with spring water and real fire, freshly baked bread right out of the oven and local herbal drinks, while listening to Ukrainian folk songs. You’ll also be able to take pictures of, and in, traditional Ukrainian costumes.
Day Six – Shoot Day, Studio Lunch, Party Day, Party Night!
Once again you’ll have the wonderful opportunity to watch and participate in another filming at the Naked&Funny Studios. You’ll have lunch at the studio with the cast and crew and you’ll also have the opportunity to continue your new relationships with the Naked&Funny gang during a late night dinner and party (or “Proshalovo”) with the cast and crew from the show. A fan’s dream, and a great time to be had by all.
Day Seven - Transfer to airport and say farewell to Odessa!
We’ll get you back to the airport in plenty of time for your return flight. You’ll be sad to go, and we’ll be sad to say goodbye to you too. The good news is we know it won’t be for long, as you’ll be back soon because you’ll most certainly fall in love with this charming, vibrant city and it’s beautiful people!
See you soon!
