Best Chernobyl Tours
The first question our clients usually ask about that location is what to see there? Let’s start with the Polissya region that is known for its relict woods and picturesque riversides. Even though the explosion on the nuclear power plant damaged that natural oasis in a great way, you’ll be fully amazed by its untouched beauty.
And then we come further. There are 10+ sites tourists will appreciate the most. We’ll list only some of them to you to keep a bit of curiosity for your future Ukraine Chernobyl tour experience.
- The city of Pripyat was the closest neighbourhood to the nuclear power plant. Today it is among the most famous ghost cities where all stayed as-is for three decades already.
- If you have already interested in the Catastrophe theme, you have seen the image of Pripyat’s Amusement Park. Its Ferris wheel is among the most popular symbols of the Catastrophe.
- The Death Bridge is a legendary location. During the accident at the ChNPP, a cloud of radionuclides covered this place and the background radiation reached 600 Roentgens per hour. It was believed that a person who crossed this bridge would certainly die in a few days. Of course, this is all fiction, but that is why they gave it such a name.
- Radar Station DUGA 1 is also an impressive construction reminiscent of the Cold War. You may be overwhelmed with its dimensions and look. The location for this unique defence complex is not accidental as DUGA 1 required an extremely high level of electricity for its supply.
