LOCATION v.1

Mykilska
drain system

With an experienced URBEX guide, you will go to explore the drain tunnel system “Mykilska”, which was finished in 1916 by the Russian Empire’s engineering forces. For almost a century, this ancient tunnel system under the central Kyiv had been forgotten till the 1990s, when a group of Kyiv urban explorers has found it.

The Drain tunnels system is not a sewer! NO RATS, NO SEWER. The water inside the system is clean and can be drunk; an amazing atmosphere of ancient underground tunnels will make you feel an explorer!

LOCATION V.2

Askoldova
Drain system

Drain system “Askoldova” is a technogenic labyrinth 5 kilometres long on 4 levels up to 60 meters deep underground. Types of tunnels are very similar because of all they had been built in the 1970s. This system is also wetter than “Mykilska ”.
Exploring Askoldova tunnels system in action: changing levels by ladders, with clean water waterfalls, echo on the bottom of 33 meters deep shaft – there is Askoldova and Kyiv style of underground urban exploration.

More Info

Some tunnels are narrow, so be ready to touch them by your back or elbows and have some clay left on your clothes. This clay can be easily washed off even with clean water, but try not to wear new and white clothes and shoes when going to the underground tour.

Temperature underground is constant, about +12 Celsius, so wear something like hoodie or light jacket.

The price for the Kyiv Underground Tour is 19 EUR per person if going in a group. In case we don’t have scheduled groups on your dates, you can order this tour on request.

The tour was really something special you usually can't do. It will take you a little bit out of your comfort zone but I promise you it is worth it :). People with claustrophobia should look for something else as described. But if you don't mind tight tunnels and you like to experience the extreme, go for it!

Excellent insight into the underground of Kiev

Wow, this trip was just amazing, Max is a great tour guide, really knows his stuff. Very helpful and very knowledgable. All in all a fab few hours exploring the depths of Kiev. I was thinking I was going to crawling on my hands and knees thankfully this wasn’t the case, more of a low stoop with some very low ceilings. As a tip do not go in your best clothes, wear sensible outfits that you don’t mind getting a bit mucky. Don’t forget to wear a belt to hold your gum boots up. I would highly recommend this to anybody who wants to have a break from the norm. 10/10

This was by far the best thing we did in Kiev on our journey to Chernobyl. I wish there were some longer tours with these people, even something more "hardcore".

Me and my friends had a great time during the tour. Our guide was really friendly and had a lot of interresting stories. The tour was one of the coolest things we did in Kiev. It’s an activity for the more adventurous people among us: crawling through narrow spaces, darkness,... I would not recommend it to children or people who are not in great condition.

Kiev Underground in three hours!

This experience was a break neck tour of subterranean kiev. Our guide (Max?) passionate, funny and well informed about the underground drainage tunnels of Kiev and the usage and protocols of the old Civil Defense Nuclear bunkers. We never felt unsafe and the provided gear meant we were only slightly dirty coming out! People over 6ft might struggle with the shorter ceiling passages that require you to bend over significantly. All in all, a great and informative tour in a challenging location!

Real Untouched History

This was simply great. The tunnels were a fun activity to explore, not too physical (a bit tougher to crouch-walk when you're 6' 4" but still easily done) as you went through them. Max's English was perfect and he was very knowledgeable about the Kyiv underground. The second aspect of the trip at the Cold War Bunker was superb. It was Untouched and real history surrounding you instead of in an exhibition behind a glass case. Highly recommend if you're visiting Kyiv.

My start began awfully as I was dropped to incorrect destination and as a result missed my tour. Vlad from Urbex put me touch with Max (tour guide) and rescheduled me to the following day's tour, and I am so thankful he did. It was an outstanding tour! Being under Kiev in those tunnels and the underground bunker were well worth it. I highly recommend to any that visit Kiev. Thank you again Vlad and Max. Max you done a great job as guide. 5 stars.

Different and excellent tour

We highly recommend this Kiev Urbex Tour to the drain tunnels and a bunker to everyone who wants to see different things than usually. Our guide Max was really good and told many special things about the tunnels and bunker. 3 hours tour went so fast, sneaking around was really fun and excitement! At tunnels you need special "rubbershoes", which they'll give you, and also gloves and torche are included. We would like to go more to the different local ug and abandoned places with them, please organize them more!

Tunnel + bunker/archive visit. Tunnel were interesting to see, but the real highlight was the building visited after that. Very interesting to see the almost untouched archives, storage, offices and command parts. Max is well informed and highly dedicated to his interest and goal. Were I to visit again, I would see if I could spec a custom, private tour with him
