Mysterious underground maze of Odessa city

Odessa city standing on Black Sea coast is often called the “Pearl of the South”. But it is known not only for its special architectural style. Incredibly huge system of underground labyrinths built by human hands stretches far beyond the city limits.

A large amount of building materials was needed to construct the city. There were extensive deposits of limestone on the territory of Odessa, which was an excellent building material. The stone was mined chaotically and as a result a huge underground maze appeared.
