What you can expect

Discover mysterious underground world of Odessa catacombs, one of the must-see attractions of Odessa. Learn about the role of the catacombs throughout the history of the city from an expert local guide.

The tour starts from hotel pick-up by a driver and guide, who will take you to the Nerubayske village, where one of the entrances to the catacombs is situated.Odessa catacombs are one of the longest in the whole world. They stretch for kilometers under the ground and, of course, attract numerous tourists with their mysterious atmosphere and rich history.

Odessa was founded by the end of 18thcentury and people used limestone from the underground quarries as the key material for the buildings. Odessa catacombs are the main reason why one of the biggest Ukrainian cities – Odessa – has got no subway. These dark premises often served for the local gangs, where they were hiding their booty and escaped police persecution. Odessa catacombs played an important role in times of the World War II. Civilians were hiding there during the long siege of the city in 1941. After Nazis occupied Odessa they became the quarters for underground resistance in all aspects.Nowadays, you can see a museum of Partisan Glory dedicated to that period.

At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel or to the city center.
