Grab a torch and step into Catacombs of Odessa, a complex of tunnels, labyrinths, and caves below the city. Spread throughout three levels, these structures first served as limestone mines. Over time, local criminals made use of the darkness and the site became the subject of fear. Although some of it has been restored for the purpose of tourism, the largest portion has never been mapped. There are about 1,000 possible exits from the site, and the length of all the burrows totals 2,500 km (1,550 mi)--longer than a trip to Paris. Be sure you have a map and plenty of water. Do not go without a guide; many people have gotten lost here, and some were never found. Using our custom trip planner, Nerubayskoye attractions like Catacombs of Odessa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

She speaks perfectly English.
Нерубайские катакомбы очень впечатлили своей естественностью.

In the beginning there was a sense of claustrophobia, but guide stopped us in such a position that it was seen out and about five minutes telling about the history of origin, that helped a little to adapt and get used to. Carried out by an electrician just helped to "not be afraid". For each turn was heard almost no going back deep into the crowd, i.e. even with a guide could be lost. History of the catacombs is a very interesting and informative! Recommend everyone to visit this architectural structure, which keeps many secrets!
