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.
I did not see any sense in the paid tours. Winter tours are not my favorites, I don't love Chernobyl so much)) Therefore, when I was asked to roll in Pripyat and just pay for fuel, I was overjoyed.
Just couple winter photos:
1. My favorite house - Lenina street 32/13. With built-in store "Rainbow" on the ground floor
2. Famous payphone
4. Most ordinary pictures. Thousands of them in the internet.
5. Kurchatova street
