Ukraine’s Hidden Gems


Pripyat - the ghost city

The city of Pripyat was founded in the 1970s as a place of residence for the employees working in the nearby Chernobyl nuclear plant. In 1986, an explosion in the Chernobyl reactor led to radioactive contamination spreading across thousands of square kilometres around the plant resulting in the evacuation of the city, making it a ghost city ever since.

A tour of this abandoned city of Pripyat will give you an insight into the horrific disaster that flooded the town thirty years earlier. Pripyat is almost a two-hour drive from the capital city of Kiev. You can choose from the different types of Chernobyl tours available to the visitors.
