Odessa catacombs, excursions Odessa

Odessa Catacombs is one of the most significant parts of the history of our city. "Due to complete lack of building material for the construction of the city”, the first Odessans showed ingenuity and perseverance in extracting the limestone from underneath the city.  The result: on the surface appeared a beautiful city, and underground appeared mysterious and intricate mazes! Odessa Catacombs is a grand system of underground quarries, partly linked together in a vast and amazing maze. The Odessa Catacombs acquired recognition and worldwide fame thanks to their absolutely fantastic size, whose total length is estimated by experts at 2,500 kilometers, leaving far behind the catacombs of world cities like Paris and Rome.
