A small trip to the fairy tale. Or simply, a pioneer camp in Chernobyl zone called “Fairy Tale” (Skazochnyi). The truth in a fairytale place. Near village Ilovnitsa. We recovered in “fairy tale” in middle of April. Sun was shining brightly on street, but there was no sign of warmth. There were almost no leaves, but it was rather dry. Therefore, we managed to see camp well. Radiation in these places is almost non-existent, air fresh and light, since all this is located in Polissya forest.
By the way about Polissya forests: walking along moss of this wonderful forest is a pleasure. Foot is drowning in carpets Chernobyl expanses))
And here is “Fairy Tale” itself:
The camp was already covered with bushes and dense forest. All is stolen a long time and all metal is taken out of zone. At mercy of nature were only a few brick and concrete buildings.
With such greatness we were met by an arch at entrance to camp:
On the arch there still remained a miracle barely a living inscription “Skazochnyi”:
Torn even frame. Not like glass. Buildings are slowly collapsing. From balconies hang pieces of linoleum. By the way, after Chernobyl accident the liquidators lived here.
All is beaten. A miracle left handrails on stairs. Cautiously climb fragile steps. To be honest, it’s a bit scary. The building is empty for 30 years.
Corridor with colored walls. Very cheerful coloring. Doors to rooms for pioneers, and later for liquidators. Inside there is a small room, shower and toilet.
Camp in Chernobyl zone
And this hall probably used for lessons on music or for carrying out of discos. Ceiling still had soundproofing material.
Great halls. Young pioneers from all over the Chernobyl area gathered here.
