    Viki Baleva Chernobyl Stalker

    She is one of those people whom you meet and feel like you've known for years. Your trip would seem as though you‘ve met a very good friend who you haven't seen for a while. She is very cheerful, adventurous, creative and open minded. She fell in love with Chernobyl in 2016 and since then their love has been mutual.

    Tanya Tanya Sunshine Guide

    A young, daring person filled with life, energy and an exuberance that tends to be contagious. She is brave enough to step out of her comfort zone into another kind of zone - the exclusion one :) Being deeply curious about everything in the world, she is always ready to share her knowledge with others.

    Tania Lara Chernobyl Croft Guide

    Chernobyl became Kate's second home in mid 2016. Be close to her and be aware of wolves, foxes and other of Katie's friends. The dogs that live inside the zone are her guardians, so try not to make her angry. Get her as your guide and you will never forget her encyclopedic knowledge, black humour and pink dozie.

    Maria loves to travel. She already visited a lot of places, but the spirit of adventure still lives in her, and she continues to explore the world. She set off on her path in the Chernobyl zone as a tourist last year, but this area has always been a part of her life. The roots of her family are there.

    Maria Tunyk Chernobyl Explorer

    This girl got inspired by the abandoned places of Pripyat and the nature in the exclusion zone. Having visited these places for the first time with CHERNOBYLwel.come, she was looking for the opportunity to spend more time in the zone to reveal all it‘s secrets. The best way to do it was to become a Chernobyl tour guide.

    Lara Chernobyl Croft Guide

    Native Kyivan, born in USSR, Alex himself was riddled by the real cause of the Chernobyl disaster since he was a schoolboy in 1986. Between that year and joining the guide squad of CHERNOBYLwel.come: ‘the All Star Team‘, as he calls it - Alex managed to graduate twice in liberal arts, get admitted to the Kyiv Bar & studied English and Italian.

    Once upon a time…she was a small ball of energy, always smiling. Maja loves globe-trotting and one day back in 2011 she wandered into the Zone. Her heart stayed there. She loves traveling and now, especially Chernobyl. She is known as a person who loves to help out, laughs a lot and likes to capture special moments and places.

    Martin writes the Radiation Diaries for us, where he explains the physics behind radioactivity and all the ‘science‘ stuff that you have ever wondered about. He is an actual physicist with a doctorate degree in theoretical high-energy physics. So, at least theoretically :) he should know what he is talking about.

    Michal fell in love with Chernobyl right after his first visit back in 2015. Later, Michal left the muddy waters of PR and drank from a beautiful well full of radioactive water. After that first delicious sip he mutated into the content-hero and works non-stop spitting out texts in our CHERNOBYLwel.come universe.

    Adam, once a normal guy, lived a boring life, until he went to the zone and fell right into the old reactor. After a few days, he absorbed a big portion of radiation and mutated into a four-handed freak and joined our team. When it’s really quiet in the office, you can hear him writing and making sounds like the famous DUGA radar.

    Moyses came to the company as a total greenhorn of online marketing. His strong growth mindset and passion in exploring customer’s needs through various marketing tools gave him valuable knowledge. When in the zone he loves to discover radioactive hotspots and we believe that this is how he is constantly charged up for new challenges.
