photos of Chernobyl

Chernobyl today looks a lot different than it did 30 years ago.

Once prosperous Ukrainian cities; Pripyat, Chernobyl, and surrounding areas were struck by the worst radioactive disaster in history.

In just three hours, over 49,000 people were evacuated from the city of Pripyat. Many were told they would be gone for just a few days. Decades later, they have yet to return.

In this photo journal of Chernobyl, you’ll have a glimpse at all parts of the exclusion zone, not just Chernobyl town.
