Zone of alienation - Chernobyl

Chernobyl is a name that scares all of us, and inspires fear, but at the same time arouses interest and curiosity.


The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is the place, surrounded by many myths and legends, most of which remained unsolved to this day. Chernobyl is included in the list of "Top 10 most polluted places on the planet" and is a favorite plot point for many computer games and movies.


So, a short walk to the history of this mysterious place. Chernobyl nuclear power station was the first erected in the Ukraine in 1971. And there were no signs of trouble, as the night April 26, 1986, an explosion occurred on the 4th nuclear reactor, which became the largest catastrophe in the history of nuclear energy and the history of mankind. Do not think that this accident has not touched anyone but the Ukrainian people. The radioactive cloud spread rapidly around the globe, covering almost the whole of Europe and even the east coast of the United States.

Ironically, today in Ukraine - Excursion to Chernobyl - one of the most popular. If you have the guts and the courage to look with my own eyes that so often appeared on television and in many motion pictures - you can personally visit the tour to Chernobyl - "monument" of a nuclear disaster of mankind! Many a lasting impression, an unforgettable adrenaline and disturbing emotions are guaranteed!

So, what is a trip to Chernobyl. The trip will take about 9 hours, during which you will visit the Museum of Chernobyl, a 30-kilometer exclusion zone, you'll see monuments to people who liquidated the accident, nuclear power will meet with staff and residents of the closed zone, which themselves have settled here and lived on the territory of the left who will share with you a little-known information about the current state of the sarcophagus, view a documentary on how to bridge the accident at Chernobyl. In addition, you will visit Pripyat - Ghost Town, which is still the atmosphere of the Soviet Union 80 years of the twentieth century, are buried residential settlements, cemetery equipment, sunken ship, and where still stands the amusement park, which is built on the day on May 1 in 1986 and never opened.


In the second half of the trip to Chernobyl, you will see the "Red Forest" - forest, located near the plant, and adopted by a majority of radioactive dust. The trees died, and stained a dark brown color, hence the name of the forest. It was demolished by bulldozers and buried, as well as other objects during the work on the decontamination area.

And of course, you will have the opportunity to see the main object of trips to Chernobyl - the most tragic of the 4th reactor!

In conclusion we can say only one thing: a clear answer to the question "Why are all the same there was this terrible tragedy?" Have not found some specialists in the world. Who knows, maybe it is you, visit the tour to Chernobyl, will be able to reveal this secret?
