The trip is absolutely safe. The dose of radiation received during the tour equals the amount one gets on an one-hour flight.
During the bus ride to Chernobyl, we will watch videos about the worst nuclear disaster in the world and find out the causes of the explosion. We will make a ride around the nuclear power station, take memorable photos and see the new sarcophagus.
Get ready for an unforgettable experience – a trip to the ghost town. Before evacuation, there were 49 400 people living in Prypiat - a small town near Chernobyl. The majority were Chernobyl nuclear power station workers and their families. When the catastrophe struck, the whole town and the nearby territories within a 30-km radius were abandoned for good. Empty blocks of flats and the silent park are all the witnesses of the peaceful atom's hidden danger.
Chernobyl exclusion zone unintentionally became a nature reserve. When people fled the town, nature started claiming its rights. Wild animals, which disappeared from the outskirts long ago, are coming back to the forest. The Red Forest lured long-missing species: foxes, lynxes, wolves, deer, elks, sometimes even bears. Domestic cats and dogs have also become feral. Apparently, human activity harms the environment more than radiation.
Our final stop is the secret destination – huge radar DUGA-1, which was constructed to detect launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
