33 years ago, a terrible disaster occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant — one of the nuclear reactors exploded. Today, within a radius of 30 kilometers from the crash site, there is an exclusion zone, where radiation is still raging.

The city of Pripyat, located 3 kilometers from the nuclear power plant, was evacuated in 1986, and his life stopped there. Since then, nature has turned the stone jungle into real. Trees grew in buildings, and iron structures wrapped in shrubs. We suggest you look at the photos that were made by people who visited Chernobyl in our time.

5. Garage
