11 Chernobyl Today

Chernobyl Today

Posted on April 26, 2013 by team

Those who want to come to the exclusion zone of Chernobyl have to file documents for a permit two weeks before their visit. Then they are instructed at the checkpoint: visitors are not allowed to smoke, eat in the open air, take any plants or items away from the zone, drink water from the wells, rivers or any other ground sources. Bodies should be covered with clothes leaving as few exposed areas as possible (the seamless apparels are preferable).

The territory is strictly guarded.

In Chernobyl you feel like being in some parallel universe.

Wild Przewalski’s horses were once brought here in the amount of some dozens. And they got accustomed to this place. Now their population has reached seventy heads.

You see rusty construction and already can’t understand what their purposes were. But they are better to be observed from afar. Any house can contain invisible or even fatal surprises.

Today Chernobyl has six shops, 2 cafes, several gyms, the House of Culture, a library. Just like in an ordinary town. But some things will appear in Chernobyl in the distant future. According to the law persons younger than 18 are prohibited to be there. That’s why this place has not had maternity hospitals, schools, kindergartens for more than twenty years.

    Is the current danger there really documented – “Any house can contain invisible or even fatal surprises.” Have any of the current residents become ill? The horses seem to be doing fine…
