What looks like a Scary walk along the Pripyat in winter?

A Scary walk along the Pripyat in the winter is very interesting. In this city there are many abandoned buildings, in which the wind wanders and snow is falling. The streets of the city are not cleaned. In Pripyat, it’s dangerous and you can fall into an open hatch.

Is it dangerous for a person a walk along Pripyat?

Is it dangerous for a person a walk along the Pripyat, because there is high radiation and emergency buildings that can collapse.

At present, the city has a lot of radioactive dust falling from the destroyed power unit and consisting of relatively long-lived radioactive elements. This dust is collected in ditches, depressions. Dust has firmly ingested in the soil, trees, houses. To the south of the city there is the so-called Red Forest, demolished during the decontamination of Pripyat and its environs; Now the forest recovers and absorbs radiation from the ground.

The city is overgrown with a chernobylnik, which grew up in the vicinity and before the accident. Under the influence of the environment, empty buildings gradually come to an emergency state. The oldest buildings of the city (as well as all brick buildings) are being destroyed most quickly, for example, one of the oldest buildings in the city – the building of the first high school, which collapsed in 2005 and also suffered two collapse in 2013.

Dangerous marauders in Pripyat

Also, the problem of the city’s security are the waves of marauders and vandals, which started back in the late 80’s. Marauders ripped out the contents of switchboards, mailboxes, pulled iron stained-glass windows and windows (For example: the main stained-glass windows of the recreation center “Energetik”, the shopping center, the “Polesie” hotel, etc.), furniture was pulled out from the apartments. The vandals knocked out the windows, dropped the elevators, the spiral ropes (some elevators can still be found stuck between the floors).

In the late 80’s and early 90’s liquidators went to Pripyat, who also during the decontamination threw electrical appliances (refrigerators, televisions, etc.), personal belongings (clothes, etc.) directly into trucks, and so on, furniture of the lowest level of contamination was taken to Slavutich.

Dangerous radiation in Pripyat

Radiation in Pripyat is now high. The background exceeds the norm a dozen times. Earth and objects in Pripyat are very dangerous due to radioactive pollution. Therefore, a walk along the Pripyat is very dangerous.

Why the city of Pripyat was abandoned many years ago?

A walk along Pripyat makes us wonder where people who lived in Pripyat and what happened to the city many years ago were.

The population of Pripyat was evacuated on April 27, 1986 because of the Chernobyl accident. A new satellite town of Slavutich, 50 km from the nuclear power plant, was built to accommodate the personnel of the Chernobyl NPP. Now Pripyat is in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. In administrative terms, the urban area is part of the Ivankov district of the Kiev region.

After the accident, work was done to decontaminate the city’s territory, which led to a significant reduction in the radiation background. Now in Pripyat regularly organize excursions
