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.
