The legendary city founded by Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv in the 6th century. Now, the capital of independent Ukraine. A majestic city with many parks, squares, museums, theatres, churches and temples. You can see St. Sophiia's Cathedral, St. Mykhailo's Cathedral, Andriivskyi Uzviz, Independence Square and the famous Golden Gate.
In Kiev, there is also the National Museum “Chornobyl”, immersing you in the events of the Chornobyl disaster of 1986, the causes and the consequences of the event. In its exposition, there are about 7,000 various exhibits. One of the most emotional elements of the museum exposition is the corridor in which the plates with the names of settlements hang under the ceiling. All the names are the names of towns and villages forced to be abandoned by the inhabitants after the accident.
During the tour to Chornobyl, you will see, with your own eyes, the monument to “Those who saved the world” and the observation deck of the nuclear reactor’s. “Shelter” (“Sarcophagus”). Explore the buried village of Kopachi and visit the hamlets where people, who refused to leave their homes, still live. You will learn about the history of the tragic and fateful accident at the Chornobyl Reactor Number 4, which occurred on April 26, 1986. You will be able to walk around the city and see the current state of the exclusion zone, an area where time has seemingly stopped.
A ghost town where you will not hear children laughing. The town is a monument to the tragedy, symbolising how an environmental disaster can turn a successful city that was rapidly developing into a dead zone of alienation.
