The School of Music, Pripyat (Chernobyl Exclusion Zone), Ukraine - October 2016

These were shot on 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.


So, onto another cool but quickly explored site. Rushed this one too as we were not allocated very much time to The School of Music.

Pripyat seemed to be a very musical place, perhaps a Soviet Era trait? Pripyat was known for being a very well educated city; many products not available to the rest of the U.S.S.R. were available here and education was very good, as would be expected with a city occupied mostly by workers of a Nuclear Power Plant.

Many buildings had Pianos in and this School was among many Schools and Nurseries around the town; but this was the only professional music school.

Very little remains here to show that it was a music school; except for a large auditorium with a Grand Piano rotting away since the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster in April 1986.
