If you’re a non-traditional traveler, you’ll love a four-hour tour of the Odessa Catacombs.  Private transportation from your hotel takes you to the outskirts of the city where you and your private guide will explore an abandoned underground world. Pass through long corridors and mazes at your own pace, while your guide tells you the history of the catacombs.
What to Expect
Building Odessa, the city was constructed of stones quarried from the earth. The city consist of buildings and homes and under the earth there were formed, long corridors and mazes. After many years there are lot of stories, tales and legends existing about the Odessa catacombs. For example, during the Second World War, these underground labyrinths hid guerrillas.

Catacombs are an interest for the studies of history and make birthday party or something like that.

They are also know for spending a nice time inside. In the city of sunshine, noisy and bustle, it is worth descending into the catacombs - the fuss and noise disappears, the air temperature, regardless of the season or the time of day, is always one and the same, 15 degrees.

You can get inside through special designed entrances of a few museums, or through unmodified places.

With transport, the tour will take 4 hours. The underground tour duration is 2 hours.

Coolest thing we did in Odesa

This will not be your typical catacomb tour, but more like a historical adventure into Odesas underground past, a mix of treasure hunt, maze and explorer spirit. It's probably not the most impressive tunnels you will ever see, but it's all about the atmosphere, the...More

I was very happy with the tour. Valentin is a very good and nice guide. He is able to adapt his talk and his pace to the visitors. We particularly appreciated that he was deconstructing some of the myths and legends about the catacombs. He...More
