Had a short visit there and it is an fascinating place to visit given the recent history. The way things are being taken back by nature is surprising.

Of you do a Chernobyl Tour, of course reactor 4 is a key site. However, it really is a bit part player in the day. You have to go to get the story narrative, but not a huge amount to see. Is is amazing how...More

It looks very normal today, but it was so deadly danger to the whole Europe or even world. Thousands of people died after this accident and those who have been fighting to avoid total disaster.

new sarcophagus over it now, so literally nothing to see. Only allowed to take photos from a certain direction also, which is rubbish.

Growing up in the 80s, the first grainy helicopter footage of Reactor Number 4 have haunted me for decades. It was a scary thing to witness back then, even from the west, and I had wanted to see the site of this historic disaster ever...More

Interesting place and nice monument. You are pretty close to the reactor itself and can see the wonderful dome structure that was completed in November 2016. The radiation levels were about 0.70 micro sieverts per hour, which really quite low considering how close we were....More

I doubt anywhere else in the world could you get this close to a nuclear reactor - let alone, the most infamous in history. Too many places 'coddle' visitors and it was refreshing to be able to really see close up where history was made....More

I saw the reactor 4 now the new cover has gone on. I had watched a documentary on it several months ago and the work involved to manage a project on this scale so it was amazing to see it up close.

It's crazy to me that you're allowed to get so close to the reactor. I was there last summer, before the new sarcophagus was put into place. I've heard that it's not as cool now, but it sounds like it's going to be much safer...More

I've had two visits to the reactor, before and after the sarcophagus was placed. Before was in October 2016, just a couple weeks before the sarcophagus was placed, and I could see the workers from Novarka working on the preparation, and the "original" reactor was...More
