Winter photos from the Pripyat not so often can be seen. Here is photos Stas and Vika made on their trip to “Zone”. There are less of the green leaves and you can see more detail as the leaves don’t block the view. More details of the ghost city – time has stopped here in the eighties.

Pripyat, winter 2019. 33 years has passed since when the reactor blown up, people were evacuated. This town famous ferries wheel – one of most photographed place.

Cafe “Pripyat” was a meeting point of the city young and old. Average age of Pripyat people was around 26 y.o. – Pripyat was a city of youngsters – scientists and power plant workers. So they liked their city cafe.

This was a Pripyat port. “Rocket” hydrofoil torpedoes (passenger express speed ships) passed here by the river Pripyat. Now it’s one of the most “spoiled” radioactive place in town.

Many buildings got some leaks because stay for years lonely – so in winter ice inside.

And apartments all got rusty, every valuable was stolen, you can’t find “authentic” flat that is looking like in 1980s everything is looted, spoiled.

In some flats people are living when they “stalker” in the city.

Vintage Soviet old computer, it was called a brand “Jupiter”. But it’s looted to the core.


Old bus stays here like this.

A collapsed city school.

Children trolley near firefighters’.

Pripyat stays as reminder to us all how can life change in just a mere seconds. Now 2600 square miles are deserted, no people – this is bigger than Luxemburg. Villages, and other places that won’t able people live for around 1,000 years.

    In the last picture we can see the nuclear power plant that went critical and killed the city. It’ll be there for maybe thousands of years as a reminder that playing with atomic fuel is potentially dangerous in the extreme.
    A few babushkas do live in the exclusion zone. A few reporters have visited them but were fearful and refused to drink a cup of tea that the old women offered them.
