Inside Chernobyl's Abandoned Ghost Town | Pripyat

  • Published on Jan 12, 2020
  • 🇺🇦 If you would like to visit Chernobyl and explore Pripyat then please visit SoloEast travel at These guys are the best at what they do and will take you where others won't 👍🏻
    🇺🇦 Not far from the Chernobyl reactor is the town of Pripyat which housed the plant's workers and was abandoned due to high levels of radiation not long after the disaster. I went there on a miserable winter day to see what traces of the past remained...

    Everything was against me in Pripyat. It was pouring with rain all day and it got dark bloody early so there was so much we could not see or do despite Igor’s efforts. Here is a little look at Pripyat anyway until I can go back in the summer to do it exactly as I want. Have a great Sunday everyone!

      Oh dude, never touch that dusty stuff or touch metal! When you get that dust of that piano..i am really worried, i hope you get that off proper and you are fine. It is not that dangerous to be there for a short period of time but that are some big NoNo´s. Love your video as always! So much respect and awareness is not often to see.

    AT 10:10 Babushka highlights one of the tragedies of modern western feminism... the belief that mothers are interchangeable and that sending a baby to daycare with strangers at 6 months old will not have an impact on their loyalty later on in life when old people need their diaper changed. Women have been tricked into thinking that Golden Globes trophies and careers bring more happiness than the eudemonism generated by taking care of a family. (Eudemonism is the complement to hedonism and contributes to long term durable happiness. It gives meaning to one's existence, usually in the form of serving others or a great cause.)

    Here's a challenge for you - quote from BBC web site - "Just outside the remote Russian village of Dargavs lies a medieval necropolis fittingly called the “City of the Dead”
    - and some locals believe that anyone who dares to enter won’t return alive.

    I enjoyed watching this since it reminded me of one of the Stalker games where you can virtually explore this area. But it occurred to me that some of it appears to be staged. The broken tv's for example, without the glass sitting on pedestals. Did vandals really go through and break every tv? And the basketball net seemed to be in very good condition. I don't think a net would be that good after 30 years of weather exposure. I just feel that some items are placed in such a way to get more dramatic effect ??

    I have been there. It's so eerie. It's the buildings. The place looks like it should be inhabited; it feels like people will come out of their apartments. It's what we're used to when we see urban construction. But it's just silence. Nothing but silence in a fairly well preserved city. You never realise how much sound makes a place feel normal until there isn't any. When you realise that the last moments of civilisation was a frightful exodus, and you are standing in the soundless place that was once populated with normality, it really feels ghostly and uncanny.
    Also, the Ukrainian people are some of the friendliest and most welcoming people I have ever had the chance to meet.

    All these Russian and eastern European vids are great - but the side trips to places like Africa and Bolivia, I don't get them. They don't compute. I feel that you are not telling us the whole story about why you go to those places.

    Yeah. Stick with India and Russia. At least you tried another place - but don't pick Mauritania next time lol. You should have just gone to Nigeria. Or west Africa like Kenya. Ethiopia is a major undertaking - that's more if you're a history buff. But at least you try.
