  • It's an amazing place. Penetrates to the bone. Impressive it is heroism of people, military and civilians, adults and children. Quietly listen to the Guide's story about how water was extracted. It is in such tragic places you know-our people did not win!

  • This is perhaps the most memorable excursion in Kerch. Go to the catacombs can only be accompanied by a guide, for many presses space, so here you want to go only to the most persistent. Very touching story guide about how our guerrillas fled in the catacombs during the great patriotic war. There are snippets of life in the Dungeon, you can feel how it was difficult for people at the time. The place is striking in its power, is one of the main attractions of the whole of the Crimea!
