I did not know I was going to this attraction, until we actually got there (friends were providing a small surprise). Although I had heard about the Catacombs before, I didn't think I'd be interested to visit. But, the surprise was just how interesting the...More

The catacombs of Odessa are a real surprise rarely heard about but very interesting. We started our trip in a taxi being driven across Odessa to our rendezvous point. We arrived at a very unassuming nissen hut by the side of the road surround by...More

Reputed to be the logest catacombs, much longer than those of Paris and Rome, these catacombs under Odessa are actually limestone mines and not burial chambers. At various times they were used by smugglers and Soviet partisans during WW 2. There is a war museum...More

The catacombs are left in their "original" condition (whatever is left after the poor times of the post-soviet times) which was already great; no lights added which means you are walking around with a torch. Irina had great stories to share (in English) and made...More

It was such a different experience underground. Rumours say that there are lots of catacombs but guides can just show you a few. Very dark and cold tunnels. Don't forget to bring your flashlight.

For all it's perks as a beach resort city, the catacombs of Odessa are my highlight. It gives a good understanding of the terrible history WWII brought to the area. The best way to go is to get a private guide (400 per person or...More
