The site of Soviet Union’s worst nuclear disaster

In May 1986 I was not allowed to play outdoors for weeks. The weather Gods had brought the radioactive fallout from the Chernobyl reactor explosion in a North-Westerly direction over Belarus towards Sweden and Norway.

With this affront (being confined to the house) edged in my mind growing up, I always knew Chernobyl was bad. Yet, I never really investigated what all the commotion was about. Β As the exclusion zone and site of the blast is only a few hours away from Kiev,Β I figured now would be a good time to rid myself of this blindspot in my knowledge of history.Β

    Funny – I watched the low-budget American horror movie, “Chernobyl Diaries” a week or two ago. Low-budget meaning horrible… Lol!

        Harald, thx. Would you say that a 1-day-tour is enough? I checked for the dates that I could go, there is no 2-day-tour available :/

        • More than enough
