Finally, here is Ghostown, which is 4 kms north from reactor. Town was founded in 1970, it located on river "Pripyat" and 50.000 people lived there. There are many new buildings and some brand new roads, other roads not a very good.


Usually a police officer who call himself a town guard was telling me that I was in town alone. then I could hit roads with no worry that I will run accross some car. This town might be an attractive place for tourists. Some tourists companies have been trying to arrange extrim tours in this town, but people- their customers scared and have been complaining about silence which is hard to stand in empty town. They charged 210 us dollars for 2 hours excursion and town guard say, they all were leaving in some 15 mins, complaining that silense is tremendous as if one got deaf.
