Our guide's Kirill dream came true - he has visited Pripyat (city in Chernobyl zone) in winter. He talk about it below.
The walk turned out not very long lasting, but the weather was awesome: blue sky and radiant, pre-spring sunshine. All my previous visits to this town took place in the summer when the buildings are drowning in leaves and branches. So Pripyat just looks like a big abandoned garden. On the basis of other people's pictures - the best atmosphere here is in late fall or when the snow melts. And the sun also gives joy panoramas. As for me leaden clouds are better for the atmosphere.
