An ecological tour to Chernobyl

Turning away from the Red Forest that was radiating anxiety and fear,
In the central area of the wounded Chernobyl zone appeared gray as an elephant sarcophagus!

Memoirs of eyewitness

According to the magazine "Forbes", Chernobyl is the most exotic place on the planet Earth. Distance from Kiev to Chernobyl is approximately 140 km, and you will see the city that 50 thousand people left during the day.
"Ecological tour to Chernobyl" is for you if you want to know:

• why the fourth reactor exploded?
• who is guilty in this tragedy?
• what the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster?

Chernobyl-2 Secret Object. DUGA-1 over-the-horizon radar station
DUGA-1 object is one of the most well-known objects of the former USSR. Its exact name is in fact «5H32». The radar was supposed to detect air targets, like launched intercontinental ballistic missiles. The signal emitted by the radar reminded of a woodpecker hammering. For this reason, the object has been nicknamed “the Russian Woodpecker”.

Lunch is preplanned during the tour. Lunch order is optional.
