Fed up of visiting busy, over-saturated tourist destinations? Then throw out your trunks, beach towel and sun tan lotion and get ready for an incredibly secluded day trip to Chernobyl. For history buffs or fans of the hit HBO TV show, this is a truly fascinating opportunity to visit the fabled town. You will delve into dark tourism, seeing the devastation caused by the 1986 nuclear Chernobyl disaster first-hand with an unforgettable Chernobyl Tour from Kiev. You’ll head to a meeting point and travel to the checkpoint at Dytyatky, located on the border of the 30km exclusion zone, where after a series of military checks you’ll be met by a trained tour guide who’ll help to ensure you see everything Chernobyl has to offer. You’ll sightsee around the abandoned Chernobyl town – an ominous yet provocative experience that provides an insight into what the world would look like without us. Next, pass through the 10km Zone by passing through the Leliv Checkpoint and see the almost fully-buried Kopachi Village, as well as its long-vacant kindergarten. At a distance of 270m, you can gaze upon Reactor #4 and the construction site of a new sarcophagus being built around it. After, explore the iconic town of Pripyat along with Lenin Street, the main square, the palace of culture, Polissya Hotel, supermarket, Ferris wheel and many more familiar sights. Get your blood pumping with a short drive through the western radioactive trace and tuck into a lunch (strictly non-radioactive cuisine). On the way to your final check out from Dytyatki Checkpoint, you’ll pass by the old abandoned Duga Woodpecker Radar station. After 10 mind-blowing hours of eerie silence and grand discovery, it’ll be time to return to Kiev for some more traditional sightseeing…
As a historical hub, the central-most location of Europe and the largest country within it, an incredible food-capital and a strong advocate for progressive technology, Ukraine is full of interesting secrets waiting to be discovered by the eager tourist. You’ll rest your head in one of two comfortable hotels within the impressive capital city of Kiev.
