I Got Irradiated At The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

Similar to the Rio Favela tour

is the nuclear disaster site tour I went on in Ukraine last week. “The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant

in Ukraine (then in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, part of the Soviet Union). It is the worst nuclear power plant accident in history and is the only level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.” – Wikipedia
This is the front gate. There are several more gates you go through. One of which leads to the administrative center for the Exclusion Zone with some actual workers there and another at the ten kilometer limit and another to enter Pripyat.

An Abandonded Nuclear Reactor

Very near to the exploded nuclear reactor sits an abandoned city, Pripyat. All of the residents were evacuated in 1986 and this is what remains.
