Due to the enormous success of the HBO-series the nucleair disaster that happened in Chernobyl in 1986 once again has gotten into the spotlights. And in 2019 – and earlier – it is possible to visit Chernobyl in a safe way, starting from the Ukrainian capital Kiev. You will get to reactor number four at approx. 250 meters, and also visit the surroundings, a.o. the notoriously evacuated model town of Pripyat. And much more. This has been one of the most interesting excursions we ever made ourselves.
Last but not least you will also visit an enormous and abandoned Soviet radar installation nearby the nucleair reactor. Check our combined Belarus-Ukraine tour example here.
