    Great pictures, have really got into this, I find it fascinating, and would love to go, but I'd be a bit unsure about the existing levels of radiation However, this obviously not being something you'd go to Thomas Cook for, I'd be interested in how you go about planning a trip like this.

    I didn't organise it but I know that Pripyat.com do trips out there. Pripyat has its own website and you can contact guides through there. Other than that, I'm clueless and just booked the plane out to Kiev. Heck there are even boards with the site address hanging off a few balconies in the zone!

    Can I ask which tour you went with? I've heard some of them rush you round,and miss some of the 'must-see's' out, but you seem to have done the full monty.

    As I didn't organise it, I'm not entirely sure. All I know is that the man who took us around worked at the Chernobyl Interform whose sign I've photographed. Our guide said that tour guiding was only 30% of his work and he seemed to relax a lot more when he knew we were only interested in taking pictures.

    WOW - big respect for going over there. Sounds like your dream became a reality that went prefectly.

    The childrens toys are sad, and I do not like the gas masks on the floor but a totally ACE report!!!

    You going back again?

    I personally think that gasmasks have a creepy beauty about them. As for going back. I sure hope that I am some day in the not too distant future!

    I've seen prictures of the floor of gasmasks before, but these ones are still creepy, as are the abandoned dolls.

    One of those banners is in Estonian, which is some distance away, I guess there was a mix & match of ethnic groups at big projects like this.
