Located inside an old fallout shelter, Secrets of Underground Odessa Museum provides an inside look at guerilla warfare the locals used during World War II. As you explore this secret underground world, you'll slowly step into the city's troubled past and discover how Odessa's partisans and sabotage units hid in these old catacombs. Originally the source of stone used to build much of the city's architecture, in the 19th century this network of tunnels served alternatively as a prison for women and a secret gathering place for the area's gangs. Dress warmly, with comfortable walking shoes. Tours are by appointment only, so make sure you call or e-mail before your visit.

  • Well organized tour. If you are a non Russian/Ukrainian Speaker then make sure to call in advance and book a private tour otherwise you'll be bored as you'll understand very little. Tour times are 10 AM, 2PM and 5 PM. For group tours it's 250 grivna per person. Private tours are 1,500 grivna. It's deep in the cave so it's cool. Be prepared and wear comfortable shoes and you can bring a jacket.
  • It would be perfect without constant sexist remarks and misogynistic jokes from the guide. Otherwise the place itself is very curious and worth a visit. P.S. I don't remember the name of the guide, but it was a group with orange helmets that entered at 10ish today, 27.06.
