Residential Areas of Pripyat: Forests In Place of Streets

"What photos people make in Pripyat or Chernobyl? Usually those are some well known land marks you can see on every photo - abandoned amusement park, a movie theater etc. All those landmarks are in one place and usually Chernobyl tours don't let people wander somewhere else. However personally I was always interesting in some "underground" Chernobyl life - places where you
could see day-to-day life of the people back in year 1986 (when the power plant exploded). So today during our trip to Pripyat we will go to these residential areas and will see the forests which has grown on the city lawns and other things", says Maxim, the visitor of the Pripyat area.
