Labyrinthine and mysterious, the Odessa catacombs hide secrets around every corner. Dare to explore the underground galleries on this unforgettable English-language guided tour.
Odessa Catacombs Tour
At your chosen time on the day of the tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel and drive over to Nerubayskoe, where the famous catacombs await us. Ready to explore underground Odessa?
Odessa's catacombs are one of the world's largest urban cave systems, running up to 1,600 miles (2,500 km) underneath the city. Most of the tunnels originate from old stone mines, but when mining was banned in the city centre after the 1917 Russian Revolution, they were adopted for other activities. From air raid shelters to smugglers' lairs and even rumoured Freemason meeting places... our guide will separate the fact from fiction and reveal the history of the mysterious catacombs as we explore the different galleries.
Visiting the Museum of the Partisans, located in the catacombs themselves, we'll learn how underground resistance organisations lived here during the war, and how over the past decades their secrets have remained hidden under Odessa.
At the end of the three-hour tour of the catacombs, we'll emerge back into daylight and take you back to your hotel in Odessa.
This is a private tour organized for you and your partner, friends or family.
