Russia's commercial growth and political power after the late eighteenth century were fueled by access to the sea. The ports of southern Russia grew through trade with the rest of Europe. Intermittent wars with the Ottomans did not hinder the take-off of cities such as Odessa. Travelers from the rest of Europe increasingly visited the coasts, especially after the Crimean war.
