Located inside an old fallout shelter, Secrets of Underground Odessa Museum provides an inside look at guerilla warfare the locals used during World War II. As you explore this secret underground world, you'll slowly step into the city's troubled past and discover how Odessa's partisans and sabotage units hid in these old catacombs. Originally the source of stone used to build much of the city's architecture, in the 19th century this network of tunnels served alternatively as a prison for women and a secret gathering place for the area's gangs.

  • The Ukrainian six are full of tunnels as you can see in this museum. There are many stories that you can learn. My wife and I participated in our tour guide Artem was great and we enjoyed the tour. As far as we see, all guides are cheerful. There's also a bar in the tunnels. Try the garlic Vodkayi:)

  • Cool place, great guide. Highly recommended.
  • Nice and warm(winter) or cold(summer) place,depends on the season. Very informative instructor.
  • Exciting tour through the catacombs of Odessa with an excellent guide! The tour nicely covers the historical, geological and cultural aspects of the catacombs and you'll literally get a taste of the nuclear winter!
  • Amazing and interesting experience. English guide was very charismatic so tour wasn’t in any moment boring, which is was pretty awesome because it lasted 2 hour.
  • Absolutely loved it! Great English guide and super fun and friendly. Also I really enjoy the history of the catacombs. It was interesting to see where it was related to the surface and what they did in the last. It was super cool! I suggest all to come see the catacombs. There was no light for most of it so sorry for not pictures
