PRIPYAT GHOST TOWN & CHERNOBYL NUCLEAR POWER PLANT | Discovering Pripyat -
Welcome to a special feature length edition of First World Traveller, effectively my Chernobyl documentary, as I visit the ghost town of PRIPYAT and the CHERNOBYL Nuclear Power Plant close to Kiev, Ukraine. You may have seen the Chernobyl Diaries - this is my real life version!
The Chernobyl disaster occurred in April 1986 during a routine test at the nuclear power plant. The resulting explosion and radioactivity culminated in the evacuation of 49000 people from the town of Pripyat.
Pripyat remains abandoned due to the radiation levels. In this video I visit the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and numerous buildings in Pripyat, from the famous Pripyat Amusement Park to the Pripyat swimming pool and many more.
The tour was booked through Chernobylwel.com, based in Kiev, Ukraine. Learn about the history of Pripyat, see Pripyat before the disaster and see Chernobyl today including the magnificent new sarcophagus, built to contain the high levels of radiation.
In this video you will see me use a Geiger counter (or dosimeter), which measures the level of radiation. I would like to clarify that the tour takes you to places where the radiation levels are at an acceptable level - you will be exposed to more radiation during an X-ray or long haul flight!
Additionally, it's important you do not place any camera equipment on the ground (or any bags), and do not sit on anything due to the radiation levels. DO NOT take aythhing from the sight, including leaves/stones etc. All of this and more will be explained on your tour. You CANNOT enter THE Chernobyl exclusion zone WITHOUT A GUIDE.
Finally, you will be scanned for radiation levels each time you leave the area. DO NOT take photos or videos of guards etc.
