Life Underground In Odessa

by on Sep.23, 2011, under History, Miscellaneous, Recreation, War and Terrorism

The catacombs in Odessa, near Kiev, Ukraine, span more than 1500 miles. Originally dug for mining stone for construction, they grew from 1794 until they were abandoned in the 1980's. During World War II, some citizens lived in the catacombs for a year or more, and people occasionally stumble upon equipment and weapons.

The woman was apparently unable to find her way out of the extensive maze of tunnels, and her remains were discovered two years later.
