Mariupol Underground

Occam’s razor in action

To my utter surprise, it turned out that the rumors about the dungeon (or rather most of them) has arisen not on an empty place. Although the information in them is often distorted beyond recognition – they’re based on real facts.

By a happy coincidence, we can even specify the exact date of the beginning of the study “underground” theme of Mariupol. It happened September 1, 1928, when the employee of Museum of local lore Peter Mitrofanovich of Pinevich were called to the corner of Karl Marx and a Small Garden. Working, cleared a ditch for a water pipe, found some mysterious underground passage. Inspecting and questioning the local old people the situation is not clarified. I note that Pinevich was not able to deal with this underground structure. Concluding his report he makes the assumption that the course could be dug by the Cossacks or the Turks .

Described by Pinevich the course really stands out among other well-known dungeons in the city. We will consider in the third part of this article.

Of particular surge of interest in Mariupol dungeons observed in recent years. Recent publications the most informative article should be called N. Skrypnyk “Catacombs near Mariupol.

And when it was demolished, the basements, which I remember very well, fell asleep. And, surely, after all the underground passages and tunnels were blocked.

So we thought until recently. While entering the former of Solomon. The spectacle is certainly depressing. To turn, the once luxurious building in the ruins, it should be able to! From the former luxury was only hints and traces. But it is enough to admire the artisans of the 19th century.

We climbed all the nooks and dead ends. It was clear that in some places the stonework is different from the original, but to break down these ancient walls, no one would have allowed it. In one place we have quietly tried to do it, it is very flimsy and we found walls. But the result did just a hole in a dull room, like a closet. Why laid the pass, we now hardly know. We were about to wrap up its search operation, but we helped the case. Not even that. Helped melt water. Our attention was drawn to Continue reading
