(4.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Dress warmly, with comfortable walking shoes. Tours are by appointment only, so make sure you call or e-mail before your visit.

  • The most unusual and fascinating excursion. 3.5 hours underground, adventurous, new discoveries and, of course, vivid impressions. The original feed from organizers.

Catacombs to visit required!
