We are in place! It remains only to pass passport control and get acquainted with the rules for visiting the Forbidden Zone. Believe me, this is for your safety, so do not ignore them.
Here you will pass an additional check and get a pass. Take this seriously, because Chernobyl is not just another city in the Kiev region – it is the most dangerous place on earth.
Believe me, you could only see this in movies. This hopper is designed specifically to protect personnel from emergencies. In addition, an accident liquidation center was located at this place. Imagine the emotional stress in this building at the time of the disaster.
You will get acquainted with the facilities at which the whole Chernobyl NPP was managed. Nuclear reactors, cooling systems, auxiliary systems – everything was controlled from here. Moreover, the Shelter project was monitored here. The main “attractions” are the central and block control panels. They were preserved in almost perfect condition. Buttons, switches, sensors, surveillance systems – all processes were controlled by one person – the shift supervisor. It is here that the famous AZ-5 button is located, which forever stopped the station and led to an explosion.
Today, computers have the size of a book, but in those days, the computer occupied half the room and had a different appearance. For the first time, SKALA appeared at the Leningrad NPP, but it was soon installed at the Chernobyl station. Believe me, you will not see such a machine anywhere, because they are not anywhere else. The main task of the computer was to monitor the work of the station. He combined all the systems and monitored the process of generating electricity. Let’s move on!
A place that was a kind of center of all technological processes. Here the most important decisions were made on the operation of the station and working moments were discussed. Get ready, because you will have an unforgettable walk through the technological channels of the reactor.

How many people were precisely affected by this terrible tragedy is unknown. We can only honor their memory, because it was these people who gave us and the whole world the right to life.
Here you can look at the protective structure in the immediate vicinity. You will learn its history, features, as well as details of the construction of the new Confinement.
To visit Chernobyl and not to visit Pripyat is the same as to come to an amusement park and not ride any of them. Just imagine: a huge Soviet city suddenly froze … forever. A few hours ago, life was seething here, and now in the city you cannot find a single resident. The evacuation was so fast that people did not even have time to pack up and took only the most necessary. Empty and destroyed buildings seem to remind us that even the slightest mistake can endanger the whole of humanity. The main attraction of Pripyat is the central square.
