KYIV URBEX TOUR
With a lot of fun, guided by an urban explorer-veteran, you will dive deep inside the URBEX culture and feel on your skin how to become an explorer with real experience obtained in a safe and legal way. We will push you out of your comfort zone to make you return with new skills and knowledge (totally new!).
Behind a rusty blast resistant door, you can find a capsule of time with frozen inside Soviet artifacts. Feel like an explorer walking along corridors of a ghost-like nuclear bunker. How much money they have buried in the name of the Cold War! And now, you can touch the hidden and exciting page of history!
Wear waders, gloves, take a torch and jump to a manhole to explore a real hidden page of Kyiv history. The drain system “Mykilska” is a 3 km long and up to 36 meters deep tunnel labyrinth which was built by the Russian Empire engineering forces in 1916 to protect Kyiv Pechersk Lavra hills from landslides. Staying during 1.5 hours underground, you will:
All important equipment and services for your guaranteed comfortable exploration are included in the tour price, no extra fees!
- Rubber Soviet waders (this unique rubber high boots from the Soviet military protective wear set you can wear over your shoes)
- A pair of gloves
- A torch
- Transfer between objects.
For passing the underground route, you need to wear comfortable shoes and clothes, which you will be not upset about making a little bit dirty and wet – as you are going to the real underground tunnels. Be ready for adventures!
Pants must be with a belt or take a belt with you separately. The temperature underground is about +12 °, regardless of the temperature on the surface.
Don’t take massive backpacks and bags with you. Better not take bags at all or take a small one. It is not comfortable to move in tunnels with big bags full of massive camera gear.
The price for the Kyiv URBEX Tour is 40 EUR per person if going in a group. In case we don’t have scheduled groups on your dates and time, you can order this tour on request.
