31 a year ago there was an accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant

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).

A whole sea of gas masks, left in an abandoned building whose walls and roof rot and crumble.


Procedural area in the hospital stands obsolete, tiles flaking from the walls, and daybed surrounded by old abandoned objects.


Cash register and a glass bottle in an abandoned school cafeteria where the mold is spreading on the walls and tables. Broken Windows remain open forever now.


Books and newspapers scatter the floor in a mess as a silent reminder of what once was a thriving city of Pripyat.


An empty hospital ward, of beds in its final rest.


Drawing books and unfinished pictures scatter the floor on the school classroom together with broken furniture and broken lamps.


Remnants of everyday life in the once noisy and bustling city located just three kilometers from the nuclear power plant.


Glass syringes and medical journal left sleep on hospital window sills.


Pripyat is still closed to visitors due to high levels of radiation, but graffiti decorates the deserted town.


Instructions for oral hygiene on the school wall. 31 people died directly from the explosion at the reactor, but many people still suffer from cancers from exposure to radiation.


A derelict kindergarten, dust covers the floor and tables and walls slowly crumble.


Heartbreak: someone's favourite children's book.




The old barge rusts, abandoned, completely alone.


Mariya Semenyuk, a resident of the Chernobyl zone, sitting near the only home she knows with her chickens.


A man walking past plates with the names of abandoned villages.


Frighteningly beautiful: the sun shines on the Pripyat forested nature slowly recovers over 30 years.

it is amazing that locals have stayed in the area, it is their homeland in spite of the previous disaster..

in the west, there is little acknowledgement of the results of nuclear meltdown, i wonder why the west has not had similar occurrences such as chernobyl and japan?

Our reactors are built to a somewhat different design from Chernobyl, I believe. And none of them are situated near the sea like the one in Furusawa. But mostly, I think it's a question of luck. Eventually, it will happen here also.

What a painfully beautiful series of photos. I have such a passionate interest in this story, and your pictures capture the emotion that is still felt so many years later.

The show "Mysteries of The Abandoned" talked about Pripyat. It was advanced at the time that it was built and I didn't know that it was a "closed city." You learn something new every day.
