Chernobyl, Duga and Pripyat from a unique retro-perspective for adventurers who have only one day in their calendar for the Chernobyl experience. CHERNOBYLwel.come has upgraded it’s official safe excursions to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone by providing you with a ride in a Soviet style car, contemporary photos of places and streets, Soviet uniforms, cold war civil defence artefacts and most of all Chernobyl stories that will indeed take you 30 years back in time. Surprising facts and tales that will give you an insight into a time when the world was just a small step away from a nuclear catalyst. CHERNOBYLwel.come will guide you through history from the very beginning in Kiev with our history documentaries which will be in stark contrast to the now abandoned streets and buildings of what was once a state of the art Soviet city – Pripyat, just 3 kilometres away from the nuclear power plant.

12 hours in total are packed with the best of what Chernobyl and Pripyat can offer. You will visit the exteriors of 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 Duga, the secret military radar. This, one of the largest military objects on the planet with it’s legends and nearby town will leave you in shock about the Cold War era. This full package, one day tour to Chernobyl with CHERNOBYLwel.come will be the highlight of your stay in Kiev, Ukraine.  

The program and places visited are subject to change due to actual constraints in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Entering buildings in Pripyat has unfortunately been prohibited since 2012.


Our trained guides will guide you ONLY on health-non-hazardous places and trails. We ensure the dose of radiation received during 1 day spent in Chernobyl zone will not exceed 3-4 microsieverts (3-4% of nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to around 4 hours on an intercontinental flight. Besides maximum safety, CHERNOBYLwel.come will take care of all documents, permits, transportation, insurance, dining, qualified guide and some surprise. Moreover, we will provide the most intense, most photogenic, and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed

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.
