    Well, what can I say! After so many years on being top of my list of places I MUST visit, it was surreal to finally get to visit this awesome place. You really can't appreciate the scale of both the place and what happened until you're stood in the middle of the abandoned city almost on your own. You could tell the overwhelming sense of pride with which the city was built, it was to be the model city everywhere else was to emulate, with it being shut down so abruptly I don't think the Ukraine ever fully recovered.

    Even after spending 2 days exploring Pripyat, there is still so much left to see, a re-visit is definitely on the cards.

    I know a lot of people hate HDR with a passion, but sod it i'm throwing a few shots in anyway ;)

    The reactor itself. I didn't realise we would be able to get quite so close:
