    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Reactor No 4, Chernobyl Ukraine

    A trip to the mysterious Chernobyl Exclusion Zone will start after picking you up from a meeting point. Interesting facts about Chernobyl and town of Pripyat will make the road to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone comprehensive and instructive.

    After going through Deviatsky post and getting all the documents fixed, the Chernobyl tour will start. The first place for you to see inside the mysterious Chernobyl Exclusion Zone will be the long abandoned village Zalecie. Ruined buildings of the village, soviet house of culture with soviet mottoes on the walls and old mysterious memorials immersed in emptiness and full silence will be your first impressions of the Exclusion Zone.

    You will discover the concrete sarcophagus of the Chernobyl Power plant’s fourth reactor, built right after the disaster and learn some striking facts about the feat of the accident liquidators.

    Stop At: Pripyat Amusement Park, Naberezhnaya Street, Pripyat 07270 Ukraine

    A ghost town of Pripyat that was built specifically for people working at the station will show you how formerly noisy town can be changed hugely under the influence of a terrible disaster. Abandoned homes, football fields, sport complexes and one of the biggest hotels in the Soviet Union, all contain the secrets that will never be revealed. You will see how the nature turns back her possession after people left the city and how deserted streets became just small paths in the middle of the forest.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Pass By: Green Tour Ukraine, Chernogorskaya st. 17/14, Kiev 01103 Ukraine

    Stop At: Duga Radar Russian Woodpecker, Chernobyl Ukraine

    Our trip will not leave you apart from a famous and impressive in Cold War period Radar System, known as the “Russian woodpecker”. This is a real masterpiece of soviet military engineering - 120 meters tall and over 300 meters wide antenna, designed to monitor NATO military activities.
