Is Now The Time To Visit Chernobyl?

Chernobyl isn’t that dangerous a place to visit, unless you go very close.  Especially, if you go on a properly organised tour.

Today, the BBC web site has a report on the construction of the steel umbrella to go over the reactor.

I’ve looked up tours to Chernobyl and it would appear they run daily from Kiev according to this web page.

So an ideal itinerary would be to fly to Odessa to see the Potemkin Steps and the Black Sea coast.

Then it would be a train to Kiev and after Kiev and Chernobyl, it would be a series of trains home, by way of Warsaw and Berlin.

If anybody fancies the trip, just put a comment here.

Only those with a serious love of travel, trains and engineering need apply. Being slightly off your trolley might be a good idea too!

  1. Definitely not my cup of tea, especially as trains cause me problems due to spinal issues. But I hope you get a companion on your trip who is nice and easy to be with and shares your interests.
