So, if I were to say, show up in Oäåñà, would you mind taking a half-Ukrainian Canadian girl down to see all that?



Of course, Lexi, I`ll show you catacombs with a big pleasure.
It is impossible to show you everything, because it will take years to explore)
But you`ll see some of the most interesting places)


By the way, as I know, Peris catacombs are illegal for visiting. Am I right? Completely different situation is here in Ukraine. There is no law prohibiting explore catacombs in Odessa. (I`m not sure that it will be the same after elections in January) So you may not be worry about police and come to catacombs.

hello

in paris you have two area
a small one is an official history museum with lot of bones well store about 2 km long (it is closed now for few month).

a huge part (about 130 km) is not allowed to visit. In case you are caught You may have an financial penalty about 60 euros ( if you are a foreigner its will be probably 0).
a good idea to visit this part take a guide ! (free one of course)

I think you`ll be interested in maps of Odessa catacombs. It will form your performance about the really large maze.
I posted some different pieces of maps from the different areas of catacombs.

Well, I wrote some short articles, but they all are on russian. I haven`t got enough time for translation. I`m going to make a special page for foreigners on my website. There will be all necessary information about catacombs and abandoned buildings.
I have some books at home, written by my friends-explorers, but they also on russian.

Very cool. Sad about the girl. Now I guess people know where to go to hide a body.. You said at first it was illegal and later that it was not? When you were talking about the girl, like that is why they could not get her. Anyway, you seem very nice. Stay safe!

I'm so looking forward to my trip out there in March. Currently deciding on a hotel this morning. Anyone ever plan on making an "event" out there?

Edit: I'll be sure to bring plenty of whisky and vodka.

Yes, it is the most dangerous mine in the Odessa catacombs. It wasn`t explored since the year of it`s closing (1976).

I'm curious about the history of these, maybe it's been covered beofore and I missed it. I'm also curious about the origin of the layout on your maps. In Paris the present-day catacombs are a tiny fraction of what was originally there, originally they were large room-and pillar mines with lots of open space. After collapses started happening, the large areas were mostly walled off and backfilled with inspection tunnels (galleries) running around the perimeter to allow inspection of the backfill and supporting walls. Thus the present Paris catacomb network is mostly just inspection tunnels built within mostly backfilled space.

Is the situation simillar in Odessa? Are the tunnels shown on the maps inspection galleries, or are they the original mine tunnels? It looks like you have various ages of mine/tunnel as well, the machine-cut blocks in your last set of photos definitely appear to be newer.





Turn off the internet and go play outside.
