Pripyat was once a thriving city, inhabited by 50 000 people. But April 26, 1986, a terrible accident on one of the Chernobyl reactors occurred, and everything changed in one moment.

After an emergency evacuation, Pripyat was abandoned and now stands deserted, dilapidated and eerie 30 years later. The Chernobyl catastrophe became the first nuclear accident in history to receive the level 7 international nuclear event scale (a second occurred in 2011, at Fukushima-1 "in Japan).
