Chernobyl Exclusion Zone: The Way It Is Today

Posted on August 21, 2013 by team

Ukraine is one of the most “nuclear” countries of the world: it has four Soviet nuclear power plants. Chernobyl NPP was the first one, it was built in 1970-77, in 1986 it was the largest together with the Leningrad NPP. Why did the tragedy happen? As they say it was “a rare combination of a technical and a human factor”.

Chernobyl NPP is huge – its length is about 3,5 km long, it employed some thousands of people.

The cooling pond with area of 22 km2 is stretching to Chernobyl parallel to Pripyat. It is six meters above the level of Pripyat so it’s going to be dried soon.
