About
A walk through the largest system of the underground tunnels in Europe. The most comprehensive tour of the Odessa Catacombs. From to 200-year old mines and quarries to criminal headquarters to WW2 partisans’ base this is an exciting story of the hidden under the ground Odessa. We'll start the underground journey with a walk through the authentic mines and quarries (aka wild catacombs). We'll explore how the miners created the tunnels about 200 yrs ago and see original artifacts of that period. Odessa's catacombs and the criminals. Discover how the smugglers used the tunnels and hear fun stories of Odessa's criminal world. A walk through the WW2 resistance quarters will take you back in time to Odessa's occupation and show how people lived under the ground. And as we get outside the tunnels, we'll glimpse at the local village and see the route we covered under the ground. Join us on this fascinating journey as we explore the underground city bringing its history to life.
