Have a hint of the spookiness that was Chernobyl

Chernobyl is an integral part of the modern history of Ukraine.

When talking of Chernobyl, you go back to the mid-1980s to remember the infamous nuclear plant accident that showed the world the riskier side of nuclear energy. The incident has been made more famous courtesy of books, articles, and movies, more so the Godzilla franchise.

While in Kiev, I can guide you on a tour of the Ukrainian Chernobyl museum to get acquainted with the history of the incident.

At least you get to know more of the nuclear disaster without being afraid of a giant mutant lizard emerging from the water.

C’mon Godzilla is just a movie, and its relaxed demeanor is a hint of the Ukrainian hospitality. Away from the mutant folklore, we can have a glimpse at the artifacts, the liquidator ware, scale models, and the famous city of Pripyat, better known as the ghost city of Chernobyl.
