Package Itinerary

This is one of the most popular and knowlageable tours in Ukraine, where you will see Chernobyl area including the town of Prypiat and the Reactor #4 of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The zone is like a 30km wide monument to the power of nature and folly of humanity, which you will never forget. You will be impressed by the consequences of human activities and how nature takes over after such a huge ecological catastrophe, which happened there in 1986. It’s a great insight into Soviet Ukraine and a chance to see how cities and villages look after 28 years with no inhabitants.
