Chornobyl Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 97 photos


Last week I took an excursion in the Chornobyl-area.

Together with my travelfriend, 2 French journalists and a English-speaking guide we had an amazing and impressive tour through the so-called Exclusion Zone.

We visited the reactor (we were standing 100 meters away from it), made a walk through Pripyat (the abandonned city 5 km away from the reactor), visited the site of contaminated vehicles and had a short interview with an old lady, again living in the near surroundings.

It was the most interesting excursion in my life.

More information and lots of pictures: you'll find them on my other website:


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Its amazing

    You were very brave or is it foolish to have taken the trip. My brother was a victim of cancer caused by Chernobyl- contamination carried to Scotland the doctors said.

    I moved to the CCCR in `89 and there were many closed towns that weren`t even on the map. I met a doctor who was from there working there early `90`s. Was forbidden to write cause of death or illness radiation! `???
