We recommend you to take an excursion “Odessky Privoz and Catacombs.
Catacombs - are the former underground quarries, from which the rock-shell was extracted - the main building material of ancient Odessa. At the beginning of the 19th century, here, underground, were created so called “hotels” for the workers and stables. Some poor horses were born, brought up and died without ever seen a day light. After the revolution the extraction of the shell-rock was forbidden. Odessa Catacombs - these intricate labyrinths at some point turned into a safe place for all sorts of criminals and deserters. They were escaping into one of secret corridors and then will safely emerge onto surface of earth a few kilometers away from that point. And in case of a siege, criminals could hide under the ground for weeks, using food stores and wells they had there. For smugglers, labyrinths served as stores for illegal goods.
Free time in the city. We recommend you to have a walk to the beach of the Black Sea. Because Odessa is the Southern capital of Ukraine with Black Sea coastline, relaxed nightlife, festive mood and amazing beaches!
