Located about a 20 minute drive from Odessa. you cannot go through the catacombs alone without a guide. There is a local guide there but If you dont know Russian you need to arrange an english speaking guide at the city because walking around the...More

Catacombs have been used by many different groups for smuggling and partisan fighting. Very interesting and unique to Odessa and it's history. A must do!

Well worth going to the catacombs to learn some of Odessa's history, and about the anti-fascist partisans who used them as a base. You can go by mashrutka if you speak Russian or Ukrainian - its about a 30 minute drive from the bus depot...More

But if you want an amazing, raw, memorable, unique, historical, extreme experience that you can't get anywhere else in the world, then THIS is the...More

Visiting the catacombs was one of the highlights of visiting Odessa. It gives you a close up view of the very difficult life underground as a partisan fighting the Nazis. I highly recommend it for anyone visiting Odessa.

My family of 4 went on the catacomb tour and it was flat out awesome. You really get a sense of the magnitude of the catacombs under Odessa, and the courage and resourcefulness of those who were defending Odessa during the second world war. The...More

Even though the flooded parts have been closed off, use a guide. Every "room" has a story - where they slept, where they made bread, where they washed clothes, the armoury, the defence positions, the communications room, the school room, the wells - which also...More
