Ukraine Photos: Touring the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

by in Chernobyl Tour 2007, Eastern Europe & the Caucasus, Ukraine


I’ve uploaded all 220 of my photos from our “ecological tour” of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, including reactor no. 4 and the “ghost city” of Pripyat:





I’ll post more about the tour later.

    Alan, it was quite easy, actually. We booked the tour through Sergei over at Solo East (http://www.tourkiev.com/). You have to do it a bit ahead of time, though, as they have to forward your details (name, passport, nationality, job title, etc) to the Ukrainian government. Also, we were lucky in that as soon as our tour date (July 4) was posted on the Solo East site, a few others signed up, lowering the cost substantially.

    Just found your site while searching Chernobyl photos. I think I’d like to go there.
    I see that you like ‘the east’, I’ve been to Moldova (my girlfriend is from there). My first visit to the eastern bloc, a very eye opening experience. Check my website for photos.
    One more thing (hope you read this :-). My GF, being from that area, hates the Soviet era and is very much against my wanting to go to Chernobyl. I think it’s fascinating as the greatest man made disaster of our time. What was your motivation?
    Cheers,
    James
