He's Alive!, Alive!
Must be the Radiation, Godzilla of the Fatherland!
Mein Gott! He's alive.
Welcome back, Ulrich
Brilliant! I did chernobyl tours too last year, I was amazed to find out the most decontaminated part of the Exclusion Zone is right next to the sarcophagus around the reactor - it did make me realize that Top Gear episode from 4 years ago was a big ol' lie, though.
It's hard to believe that it's over 4 years ago when I was in Chernobyl. Time really does fly!
Me and my son paid for a private tour with just me and him on it, and while it was expensive, I feel it was still worth it as we could dictate where we visited and do it at our own pace. We only did a one day tour which was not nearly long enough and I'd love to go back someday to see the places we missed.
I am late coming to this to thread. Great photos sir, and a great experience. I just got through watching HBO’ Chernobyl series for the 4th time. Riveting and horrifying stuff. Would love to get a book on the subject someday.
I always recall how the USSR said NOTHING BAD had happened. Indeed.

Going there is on my bucket list and I am envious of those who have been there. My fascination might come from living in the vicinity of Three Mile Island, Peach Bottom, and Limerick nuclear power plants.
One of my favorite memes from the Chernobyl series.
Nuclear Tourism Experience in Lithuania for Fans of the Chernobyl TV Series | Lithuania Travel
Following the premiere of the HBO series Chernobyl and a reception from viewers that has been more rapturous than that experienced by the finale of Game of Thrones, Lithuania has a message for Chernobyl viewers.
Just one year following the catastrophe in Ukraine, a second reactor whose construction was similar to the one in Chernobyl, began operating in Lithuania’s nuclear power plant. This is why, when it came to finding a location for shooting some of the main scenes for Chernobyl, the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP) was the natural choice. The film crew were able to enter the closed complex and even climb on top of the reactor, an experience which can also be enjoyed by tourists to the site.
