Although the reactor is now fully covered by a new steel structure it is still unnerving to stand within yards of the building that caused all the problems so many years ago.

I visited the reactor site as part of an organised trip to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone - the only way you can visit as a tourist. The experience was brought to life by our superb guide who told the story and informed you of everything...More

This was definitely one of the best experiences while travelling in Ukraine, to have watched the 5 part mini series on HBO and then to come to this place to see it in person is life-changing. I was surprised we could get so close but...More

Visiting the site of the world's worst nuclear disaster is an incredible experience. Expect very tight security and inappropriate nuclear safety protocols. The vast scale of the reactor buildings and the monumental efforts made by those involved to reduce the impact of the accident are...More
