Chernobyl best tour! I knew little about Chernobyl, but really wanted to get there. This place is something on the verge of fantasy, huge empty buildings, streets without people and and the famous amusement park. In fact, the TTC team guarantees safety, we carried out dosimetric monitoring and talked in detail about the “life” of the zone at the moment. You can’t imagine it in the real world. Thank you guys for diving into this story!

A true HBO journey. It was amazing to see in reality the places where the series was shot. Full immersion in the atmosphere of that time, a frightening disaster and complete silence. A huge contrast after the bustle of the city, here you understand the beauty of nature without a man. You should see it at least once!
