    Spent 2 days in Chernobyl and Pripyat at the start of April. Had the best time of my life. Went with my usual Urbex crew Randomnut, Liv, Jim, Catscratch, Dark Zac and wifebeater.

    History

    Pripyat was founded in 1970 to house workers for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. It was officially proclaimed a city in 1979, but was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster. It was the ninth nuclear city in Russian, literally ("atom city") in the Soviet Union at its time. Its population had been around 50,000 before the accident. The annual rate of natural increase was estimated at around 800 persons, plus over 500 newcomers from all corners of the Soviet Union each year. It had been planned that the Pripyat's population should rise to 78,000 in the near future. Pripyat had a railroad link to Yazov station (Kiev railroad line) as well as a navigable river nearby.
