Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Tour
It was a calm night on April 25 and 26, 1986. Suddenly, the people living in Pripyat and Chernobyl felt an impulse coming out of nowhere, and the firefighters were called to extinguish a fire at Chernobyl nuclear power plant. They didn’t know, back then, that it was the worst nuclear accident in the world, and that it would turn their lives upside down.
The RBMK reactor number 4 of the power plant exploded releasing tones of radioactivity into the air. Hundreds of people were killed, thousands were injured, and millions are still affected by the consequences of the explosion.
Is It Safe to Opt for Chernobyl Tours Now?
The territory most affected by the explosion is now called the exclusion zone. People are not allowed to live there and the free-and-easy tours are prohibited. The towns of Chernobyl and Pripyat are empty: they are called ghost towns.
However, we have good news for you: you still can enjoy the Chernobyl travel! Our company has the license required to be able to organize trips to Chernobyl, so we can help you arrange the most memorable tours of your life.
