The unique communist atmosphere, the chance to drive an UAZ or Lada, and pictures in communist uniforms will give you a unique perspective of the Chernobyl area and the country before and after the Chernobyl accident. You will visit abandoned buildings, including a swimming pool, a hospital, a school, a kindergarten, a police station, and an amusement park, which will be followed by a visit to the secret military radar station, Duga.

Surprising facts and stories will let you peek into a time when the world was just a small step away from a nuclear catalyst.

  • Ludmilla

    Cyber Angel Guide

    This ever-smiling, positive girl with a great sense of humour has German as her second language (almost). She loves to catch up with new words in other languages too so it is pretty probable that she will also know some words in your native language. She is passionate about the nature in Chernobyl and loves having good people (you) around. At school she hated physics but thanks to Chernobyl she now realises that physics, especially in connection with radioactivity, is very interesting. Ludmilla has a big heart and in her leisure time, besides reading books, listening to music or spending time with her family, she also finds time for children in orphanages and those with cancer in the Ukraine.

Is it Safe to Travel to Ukraine Nowadays?

The answer is as travelling to any other country if you follow rules and stay away from restricted ‘no-go’ zones.  Ukraine is back on the rails but as we all know situation on Ukrainian eastern border is quite tense. We strongly do not recommend travelling across regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, that’s for sure. Kiev to Russian borders near Luhansk it’s almost 1,000 kilometres. Chernobyl is even further from Luhansk. During your whole Chernobyl tour we guarantee your safety from pick up to drop off, as always.

Chernobyl welcomes you!
