Overnight in Slavutych Town

A special offer for multi-day tour to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – an overnight in Slavutych town, the successor of Pripyat town, where the ChNPP workers are living

I have prepared this special offer for those guests of mine, who have already visited the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for at least once. And let me underline, that this offer is possible only on a multi-day tour.

Normally, when my guests come to visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone on a multi-day tour for the first time, we stay overnight in one of the hotels at Chernobyl town (there are 3 hotels there, by the way). Hotel choice depends on availability of rooms in each hotel and if you book your Chernobyl trip in advance (6 months or more) there is a higher chance to get more privacy and comfort.

But if you come to visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for the second, third or more times, then I have a fantastic offer for you! What do you think about visiting the youngest town on the territory of Ukraine?

Birth of this town and its history are directly connected to the tragic accident at the site of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station in 1986. The town was rapidly constructed by the builders from the eight former Soviet Union republics. The town has replaced Pripyat and became a new living place for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers, as three other ChNPP reactors were restarted after the accident and kept working for many years. And life in this town nowadays is still connected to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station and the Exclusion Zone. The town is unique and differs from all others – for instance, there are no street names as the territory of the town was divided into quarters, which received names after the capitals of the republics that built them. Each such district has its own architecture style, which refers to the traditional architecture of the nations, who have built them. By all means this town is a very special place. The name of this town is Slavutych (after the Old Slavic name of river Dnipro – “son of glory”).

You will have a chance to walk around the town on your own, see architectural difference of quarters, imagine, what is life of people in the town, visit one of local restaurants (on your desire) etc., as this town is located outside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and there are no restrictions in comparison to Chernobyl town. It is not as big as it seems on the pictures, but definitely worth your attention, as the future of this young town is undetermined.

How do we get there? It is pretty simple – at the end of our first touring day at the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone we will take a train from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant train station named “Semykhody”, a.k.a. checkpoint “Semykhody”. Before getting on the train, we will firstly pass radiation and passport check. Then we get on the train and it will take some 50 minutes to reach Slavutych town. Pay your attention, that on our way we will cross the territory of the Belarus Exclusion Zone, known as “the Polesie State Radioecological Reserve”, but you don’t need to have a visa to Belarus to take a train, as it does not stop there. On your way you will see some absolutely remote abandoned settlements and some inhabited ones. Plus, there are some amazing views waiting for you, while you will be passing over Pripyat and Dnipro rivers’ bridges.

About myself

I designed this website for those people who want to find out much more than just during an ordinary tour to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. I would like to show you everything from my personal experience in such a unique place.
Experience of a person who was relocated from the territory of the exclusion zone in a small age and became a worker of Chernobyl town. After 8 years of work in Chernobyl town, I decided to become a freelancer and share my experience with the others.
