This 12-hour day trip is packed with the best of what Chernobyl and Pripyat can offer. The unique communist atmosphere, the chance to drive an UAZ or Lada, and pictures in communist uniforms will give you a unique perspective of the Chernobyl area and the country before and after the Chernobyl accident. You will visit abandoned buildings, including a swimming pool, a hospital, a school, a kindergarten, a police station, and an amusement park, which will be followed by a visit to the secret military radar station, Duga. The guide is equipped with photos of Pripyat and Chernobyl, giving you the chance to go back in time to 1986. You will experience the communist propaganda and its artifacts—buildings, signs, slogans, and military technique.
