discover the underground world of Odessa
Odessa's catacombs stretch more than 2500 km (4000 km according to some records) underground, in a real parallel world.
Underground works in our region have been performed since the 1830s, when stone was used for the construction of the city. Multi-level labyrinths were created at random and, as a result, these stone quarries are a real lost world, only parts of which has ever been explored. An area in Nerubayskoye village is in the vicinity of the oldest of Odessa catacombs. It was there that the Partisan Resistance detachment was stationed under command of V. A. Molodtsov-Badayev during the first months of German occupation of the city. For this reason an excursion to the Museum of Partisan Glory is not just a tour of the land museum (which includes such relics as the death letter of Komsomol member Yasha Gordiyenko, head of youth intelligence group in Molodtsov's detachment).
Almost all of the excursion is occupied by a tour inside the underground labyrinth, accompanied by a guide.
The tour takes place in the small town of Nerubayskoye which is located next to Odessa (about ten miles from the downtown).
