Catacombs of Odessa, Nerubayskoye

Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Grab a torch and step into Catacombs of Odessa, a complex of tunnels, labyrinths, and caves below the city. Spread throughout three levels, these structures first served as limestone mines. Over time, local criminals made use of the darkness and the site became the subject of fear. Although some of it has been restored for the purpose of tourism, the largest portion has never been mapped. There are about 1,000 possible exits from the site, and the length of all the burrows totals 2,500 km (1,550 mi)--longer than a trip to Paris. Be sure you have a map and plenty of water. Do not go without a guide; many people have gotten lost here, and some were never found.

  • Randomly chose day drove to the catacombs, and there the event led rally Partisans-75 for children. We have just turned out to be a scooter and helmet. And we were allowed to run on the catacombs with the son as participants! Much else that was afterwards plus halt with buckwheat with canned meat and sweet/hot tea. The sea of impressions left, the day was a success! Going again!

  • Our excursion to catacombs formed bright, largely thanks to a charismatic tour guide-researcher Vlada, who was able to make this adventure)) do Nerubajskie catacombs of primary interest to explore this phenomenon. In them you would understand how it, for what purposes and who are doing this. And here's to develop and deepen their knowledge and sensation-I advise to visit already underground passages under the Moldavian girl. There you are waited by unusual "halls" with stalactites, roots of trees, sloping down to the incredible depth and underground lakes. Uniquely-catacombs is a landmark in Odessa, which should not be ignored!)
