About the Object

The route offers 2,5-3 hour walk along the underground corridors of the bunker of 1930-ies, through the tangled labyrinth of passages, where one can feel what Theseus could have felt in the Minotaur’s Labyrinth.

The museum is an affiliate and addition to the monument “Catacombs of Moldavanka District”. Here you can see real caves higher that human height and hear many stories about this unique underground world. In addition, you can take part in real archeological excavations and of course find out about past and present explorations of the catacombs in Odessa. Probably you could even pass a test in underground orienting.
