good to see you can visit the place, as in it is safe to do so, for some reason i had the impression it was a no go area due to radiation hazard . Great pictures and many thanks for sharing them

I want one of these books for my own . I love those soviet drawings.



By the way, amazing photos. It must be really shocking to be there and see all that devastation.

I don't think you want anything that's filled with radiation in your house

Some of you might find this website really interesting, http://www.kiddofspeed.com

I discovered it a few years ago, and go back to it a few times a year because I love the photos and the stories and science. It's about a woman that rides her motorbike through Pripyat and the dead zone, it's a great website.

Thanks for all the information regarding the tour through the dead zone as well, really great photos
