Here are the photographs I had taken during my trip to Chernobyl. For the people who don't know the history or didn't see the HBO show, the Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the No. 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat in the north of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.

Oh that is hella eerie

It is considered the worst nuclear disaster in history; when technicians at reactor Unit 4 attempted a poorly designed experiment. Workers shut down the reactor’s power-regulating system and its emergency safety systems, and they withdrew most of the control rods from its core while allowing the reactor to continue running.

A shot like this really puts it into perspective. That they HAD so many masks, all just abandoned.

if this photo were taken at night, this will look like an horror game :(

These mistakes were compounded by others, and at 1:23 AM on April 26 the chain reaction in the core went out of control. Several explosions triggered a large fireball and blew off the heavy steel and concrete lid of the reactor. This and the ensuing fire in the graphite reactor core released large amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere, where it was carried great distances by air currents.

I'm surprised the drawing on the wall still looks good.

For some reason I love the pics of the amusement park which was never abandoned- because it was never opened.

On April 27 the 30,000 inhabitants of Prypiat were evacuated. Since then, the city is abandoned even if nowadays more and more tourists decide to come and explore the remains which are left after that disaster. Here is my view on what's still behind these walls.

Very odd, a pair of a woman's high heel shoes sitting on the OR table.

I really wish that each of these pictures were identified . So that others less familiar (like myself) would better understand “Where & What”? Exactly we’re looking at.
