The day of April 26th, 1986 all Soviet citizens remembered as a day of terrible catastrophe for humanity. That’s when the explosion in the reactor of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant happened, which not only caused enormous damage to the environment for numerous years, but also claimed thousands of lives and destroyed the life of millions of people. Today on 26th of April, the tribute is paid to the memory of all those who have worked in the Chernobyl zone immediately after the explosion, and prevented the terrible consequences of the disaster.
Chernobyl today – is not only a monument to the poor track record of humanity, it is also a terrible memorable part of our history that will long be remembered around the world.
This is just the way humans are, that the danger always attracts us. We are always interested to visit and see the places that are dangerous to others. This applies to Chernobyl. Today, after a quarter of a century, the background radiation of the dead zone began to slowly recover, and no longer presents a great danger to daily tours in a dead city. Some people are slowly making their way back to the homes they left in the distant 1986, to see how uncontrolled nuclear power has changed their usual living conditions.
Our travel company will unveil the secrets of the dead city by visiting its main “attractions.” This extraordinary adventure will allow you to change the familiar view of life, will make your re-think your principles and beliefs, as well as provide an opportunity for some time to touch the history of the nuclear power of humanity.
