Tour of the underground Odessa: history, secrets, legends

It's not a secret that almost all of Odessa was built over the catacombs. Word is, that the length of underground labyrinths is 3000 km, and you can enter it in almost every city yard ...
There was kept smuggling, printed revolutionary leaflets, hid from the Nazis, planned scams and even held hostages.
But to open the curtain of secrets of underground Odessa you don`t need to travel far away. We will show you the expositions of Odessa, revolutionary, heroic, bandit and adventurous directly from Moldavanka!

Description

We`ll put on helmets, arm ourselves with flashlights and feel like survivors of an atomic war - the underground bunkers were designed for more than 4,000 people and although now it will not be possible to "hold out" in them, there is still something to see!

We will learn how Odessa was built and even try the work of a quarry, armed with real tools of the 19th century on our own.
We`ll hear about geological features and anomalies. Is it true that in the Odessa catacombs there are new types of tiny living beings?
We will also visit the “island” of lovers and a real prison - abducted women were kept here in order to be send by sea to Arab countries.

We`ll look at the partisan camp: during the Great Patriotic War, the catacombs played an important role. There were headquarters premises, warehouses for food, weapons and explosives, a communications radio station.
There was even an underground school and a church!
But we will tell you not only about heroic deeds - from a long stay in a closed space in pitch darkness and silence, people went crazy, and ...

Well, how is Moldavanka without the raiders?
Here the cream of the criminal society gathered at long tables. They planned daring crimes, educated a new generation, shared profits, and even, according to legends, hid real treasures.
And what about smuggling? Yes, it has existed here for decades!
