Description

HBO series Chernobyl was filmed in Vilnius one of the sleeping quarters – Fabijoniškės. This district was built around the period of the actual Chernobyl catastrophe in the late 1980s. During the tour you will visit Fabijoniskes as well as other filming sites and learn about soviet life as well as Chernobyl catastrophe.

There were many gossips why Vilnius was chosen as a stage for the HBO series “Chernobyl”. Definitely some of its parts look like Pripyat, but do you know why? The town of Pripyat (‘peaceful atom’), created in the late sixties to service the plant, was built during few decades as the symbol of a friendship between the soviet nations. Most of the Soviet republics had their town districts built by then. That is why the series were shot in Vilnius quarter Fabijoniskes that served as an example of Pripyat.

60 of the 88 days were spent filming in Lithuania recreating the lives of the people in Soviet era. One of the most-visited museums in Lithuania is an actual KGB prison and still has its KGB cells and torture chambers intact. The original pieces of furniture where prisoners were held were used in the shooting of the series. We will end our tour at the KGB building.
