Chernobyl and Pripyat

In Pripyat, a new forest ecosystem has formed. There are new levels of forest, food chains, and other attributes of wild nature. Boars walk around in the stadium, and birds make their nests inside the “Prometheus” cinema (in photo above). Pripyat is not a dead city at all, it’s now a part of the forest, which is full of life.

Regarding the radiation – inside the town of Chernobyl, the radiation doesn’t exceed that found in Ukrainian capital of Kiev – 10-15 mR/hour. Inside the 10-km zone – it increases a bit, then in Pripyat the average radiation is 50-80 mR/hour, which is very safe for short visit.

Many photographs. Green forests, animals. And much devastation.
