The Dead City of Pripyat

You shouldn't confuse the cities Pripyat and Chernobyl, because they are completely different. The fate of the cities was decided by the nuclear disaster of 1986. While personal visit to Pripyat you it's possible to understand all the terrible scale of the disaster, which is located just 3 km from the nuclear power plant. Its gloomy locations such as an amusement park, a ferris wheel, abandoned hospitals, high-rise buildings represent a real apocalypse of the modern world.

Secret radar “Arc”

This structure is located near Chernobyl. It was considered as a secret facility for possible missile launch detection during the Cold War. You can get to the Chernobyl " Arc " through the official tour program.

Soviet Command Center

The secret Chernobyl-2 facility is located on a huge territory with several facilities and a checkpoint. At the time of its full-fledged operation, the facility had modern technologies and equipment for detecting ballistic missiles at long distances.

Red Forest

It is quite an interesting location for foreigners and our tourists, because nature and fauna have suffered a lot, so now there are many wild animals, such as Przewalski's horses. There is also an unusual growth of vegetation here, because it was the pines that at that time of the accident detained most of the radioactive particles and saved many lives of the population of Pripyat.

Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

Excursions to the nuclear power plant are quite legal today, because the radiation is within acceptable limit. In 2017 the construction of a "Shelter" for the fourth power unit of the nuclear power plant, where there was an explosion, was completed.

Buried village of Kopachi

The visit tour in the Chernobyl Zone includes a visit to the village of Kopachi. This buried village is located 3.8 km away from the reactor, and therefore has suffered the most from radiation. Given the dose of radiation that fell on the buildings, it was not advisable to leave them, so all the structures were buried, and the residents were evacuated.

Amusement Park

Unfortunately, it happened a few days after the accident that the opening of a modern amusement park was planned for that time. But it didn't happen, and nowadays it's one of the most popular places for tourists. You can get here both in a group and individual tour in CHZO. The main attraction of this location was the Ferris wheel, which still fascinates any visiting tourist with its spirit of the apocalypse.

Chernobyl cooling towers

This object is located near the reservoir, but it could not be completed because of the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and they remained to remind of the scale of the disaster. These structures can be viewed from the inside and understand what amounts of work were done by engineers and will remain incomplete forever.

Chernobyl Sarcophagus

The modern and completely safe confinement is an object created from modern technologies. It's also included in the tour program. Thanks to this structure with a height of 109 meters the surrounding area is completely protected from the destroyed sarcophagus and its harmful emissions.
