Nurseries Turned Laboratories, Pripyat (Chernobyl Exclusion Zone), Ukraine - Oct 2016

So now my huge backlog takes me into my second time to The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. I visited in October 2016 for a four day tour which took us to many places which one might not see on a normal tourist trail to the zone.

It was an amazing experience to see The Zone again and each day was packed, getting up at 06:30 to catch the 07:40 train from Slavutych to The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Station, and back to our rented house in Slavutych (the town built to house those who lost their homes in Pripyat) at around 20:00/21:00.

Originally a site of misc Nursery Buildings and what appeared to be some sort of a garage; this cluster of buildings was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl Disaster, but reoccupied in 1991 for scientific purposes and nuclear and radiation studies on crops, foods and plants etc.

Care needed to be taken around the building because of highly radioactive soil samples on the shelves inside the labs; taken from around The Zone for testing by scientists to see how the Ionising Radiation had affected the soil.

The buildings were used for several years and finally laid up for good in 1998.
