Description

Depart Kiev and journey to Chernobyl, famous as the site of the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Learn the rules of radiation safety and watch specially-prepared video material about the disaster en route to the exclusion zones.

Learn how the city, while largely abandoned, is still populated with local workers and policemen along with shops, a post office and café. See sights such as the museum, St. Elias Church, the Park of Glory, river port and memorial to the liquidators who rushed to reactor number 4 in the immediate aftermath of the explosion.

Visit reactor number 4, where complex engineering solutions are underway designed to transform it into an ecologically safe system. Discover the secret facility of Chernobyl 2 and go to the Soviet over-the-horizon radar station of Duga, where foreign radio stations were blocked and espionage took place.

Next, go to the ghost town of Pripyat and see the abandoned amusement park and the Ferris wheel that no child ever got the chance to ride. See abandoned boats and ships in the port, and feed the giant catfish in Pripyat River.
