Visiting the most famous symbols of Kiev and Ukraine: the monument “Motherland” – Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War and Kievo-Pecherska Lavra. A colossal 62-meter statue of Motherland (102 m with pedestal) is made of special stainless steel and assembled with a special crane. The memorial complex “Museum of the History of Ukraine in World War II” occupies 10 hectares on the hill of the right bank of the Dnieper. It consists of a giant bowl of the Eternal Flame, an exhibition of military equipment from the times of World War II, as well as post-war years, the alley of the Heroic Cities. Along the slopes of the Dnieper lays the front alley, which goes to the gallery of the Main Entrance leading to the square and the museum itself. The sculptures of the gallery embody the heroic defense of the USSR border from the German attack, the horrors of the German occupation, the guerrilla struggle, the labor feat of the rear, the battle for the Dnieper.

Breakfast in the hotel. Today you will visit the excursion “Odessa 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.
Lunch at the Indian restaurant. Free time in the city.
Dinner. Also, you may just dedicate that night to discovering Odessa’s night clubs and discos! Return to the hotel. Overnight in the hotel.
|Breakfast in the hotel. Check out. Transfer to the airport of Odessa without guide. End of service. Happy return journey home.|
