The empty road that passes the red forest, which received such high radiation that it killed the entire forest almost instantly and turned it red. 🌳 🌲 .

The abandoned kindergarten of Kopachi. The rest of the village was bulldozed into the ground as part of a soviet experiment to combat the radiation from Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

0.9 millisieverts of radiation outside of the famous Pripyat Ferris wheel. Now overgrown with vegetation- what a spooky place! 👻 🎡 .

In 1986 reactor 4 of Chernobyl nuclear power plant suffered a fire, which led to a thermal explosion. Many men sacrificed themselves to prevent a further disaster that would have effected the whole of Europe as we know it, creating a nuclear explosion so big it would have levelled Minsk, which is 300 miles away!
.
This is the monument created by “the liquidators” and celebrates the hero’s victory over the invisible enemy and saving Europe.

Today I was lucky enough to be able to explore all of the exclusion zone and walk around this eerie place.
