This is the place that changed the history of mankind, financially ruined Soviet Union and made the whole world question nuclear energy. Now you are about to witness it on your own from a totally different perspective from what you’ve seen in movies or documentaries. A perspective that will shake your values and worldview. A perspective that will take you back in time to the Soviet Union, to the 1980s, deep into the Cold War. You will walk in the footsteps of comrade Anatoly Dyatlov who commanded his colleagues and led the situation to the world's most (in)famous nuclear blast.
Chernobyl LIVE tour will take you online around the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant from the very decision to build the largest nuclear power plant, through secret KGB documents stating what defects the fast construction caused, all the way to the destined night of the disaster. With your guide you will peek into the premises of Chernobyl Power Plant, even reactors 5 and 6 that were left unfinished, you will walk over the memorial alley dedicated to the direct victims of the accident, you will see how the power plant operates today, including a train station that brings workers every day to work. As an insider, you’ll visit the canteen where workers measure their radiation before they’re served, you will stand at the same spot from where one of our guides eye-witnessed the explosion in 1986, you will see the fire station from which the firefighters were the first to liquidate the aftermath, you will even see the ruins of the notorious helicopter crash. With a Geiger counter in front of the camera, do not forget to take screen shots when we round the Red Forest, ghost town Pripyat city sign where we will safely step into the danger zone and measure hotspot radiation levels with you by our side. Last but not least, you will see and learn about the largest moveable object on planet Earth – the newest safe confinement (sarcophagus). Yes, you will even get a selfie with it so all your friends can see where you can teleport!
All this with a background of over 11 years spent in the Chernobyl Zone, including great professional guides and her best friend – the dosimeter. Curious, thrilled, excited.
