Full description
You will be going into a suburb of Odessa known as village Nerubajskoe were you will visit catacombs. It is the only legal entrance to the Odessa Catacombs. This tour will help you to see the underground history of Odessa. The tunnels and rooms are 1 square kilometer. If it were laid out in a straight line, the labyrinth would stretch five times longer than the world's second largest catacombs, underneath Paris. No one knows how old Odessa's network is, but the catacombs were greatly expanded in 1794 when Catherine the Great sought limestone to build her city by the sea. Odessa, from the moment of its birth, was under construction on a stone of a shell rock which was extracted from the underground. Therefore, the city's underground labyrinths were formed and store secrets of the past. The history of the Odessa Catacombs represents a terrible monastery of criminality and simultaneously heroism in Odessa during the guerrilla period of occupation during WW II.
