The first mention about Chernobyl dates back to 1193. During the Second World War, the town was severely destroyed, and the restoration works were started right after its end. In Soviet times, Chernobyl was no different from other villages. However, there was one peculiarity: in 1970, there was started the construction of nuclear power plant in 10 km away from the city.
Around the same time there was founded Pripyat, and later in 1977, Chernobyl was inhabited by 14 000 people. The city is preserved in the form it was before the tragedy. Tours to Pripyat are giving you a chance to see this nightmare.
There were colleges, schools, medical institutions, a House of Culture, a hotel and kindergartens. With the development of transport infrastructure, the city gradually turned into the regional center. There was a plan to build the largest nuclear power plant with 12 reactors with a capacity of 1000 MW. There were built only 4 reactors, and two more reactor were under construction. The people were dreaming, living, gave all their strength to their work, until the tragedy had happened…
33 year have passed since the disaster, however, Chernobyl is still not very popular among tourists. Mostly here come thrill-seekers, who want to see the dead zone with their own eyes. Therefore, excursions to Pripyat are in high demand.
The Chernobyl disaster occurred 26 April 1986. There were two powerful explosions in the 4th power unit with a few minutes difference. The firefighters were not aware about the reason this fire had happened, so the first thing they did was extinguish it with water. That provoked a series of small explosions and the large amount of pollutant emission.
To stop the radiation spread, the reactor was filled in with 5 000 tons of sand, clay, boron and other elements.
