A Village In the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

A Village In the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

Novoshepelichi village used to be a densely populated place (3000 people). During the first days after the Chernobyl catastrophe on April 27, 1986, the radiation background here was equal to 110-130 mР/h. But the citizens were evacuated only on May 3. They stayed there for a week!

The village had a school, a house of culture, a library, a cafe, a boarding school and a kindergarten. A woodworking plant, a sewing studio and a fire station were there as well. Among those who lived in Novoshepelichi were builders of Pripyat. Blogger zametkiev paid a visit to the abandoned place to take these interesting photographs.

  1. Great post. It’s kinda nice (in a sad way) to see Novoshepelichi is still untouched. I imagine there are less ‘visitors’ to Novoshepelichi than Pripyat so less damage happens.
