  • Defense of the Adzhimushkay quarries History Museum was opened in the year 1967. Its Exposition tells about the history of the heroic defenders of Kerch, fought in the Adzhimushkay quarries. When in May 1942 year Nazi troops occupied Kerch peninsula, part of Soviet soldiers managed to cross the Taman, but a huge part of defenders-about 170 thousand people-was in capturing enemy territory. Many surrendered, but much has been and who continued to fight heroically, descending into the Earth-in underground workings, where since ancient times, the locals quarried stone for construction. The largest such underground garrison assembled in the village quarries adzhimushkaj, in May 1942, he had up to 17 thousand people: fighters, party workers, doctors and just locals fleeing the invaders sometimes whole families. It was a real garrison commander and a few units, headquarters, medsanbatom, guard service. Repeatedly garrison organized attacks on the enemy, suddenly leaving the surface, fascists, but was under pressure from excess forces again and again was forced to go underground.

  • 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!

  • Above the Earth's surface, the creators of the Museum as if to push Plast breed from which the defenders escape Kerch, Crimea defenders! Excursion lasts about 1:00, spend it for groups of not less than 5 persons. Be ready, that underground serves a variety of feelings, from pride to anger to sadness. At the mass graves, "the nursery" tears rolled from my eyes not controllable. Escaping from the troops of Nazi Germany in 1942, under the land retreated more than 17 thousand. people who kept the defense more than half a year. In the autumn of 1942 onwards were taken prisoner and sent to the surface of the last defenders of kamenolomen. They were less than a dozen. The rest died in the collapses caused by the explosions on the surface, from poisoning with poisonous gases (the Germans poured in three quarries poison gas), from hunger and thirst. While underground, you realize what spirit possessed the Soviet people. Museum staff keep the memory about events of bygone days, bear it to us professionally and with soul.
