This graveyard in Pripyat is one extremely contaminated place. After the disaster, the Soviet authorities removed contaminated soil from much of the zone, however here it was impossible because of the bodies in the ground.
Every year, people return here to spend time with their dead friends and family.
Since you’re here…
Contamination Zone is a group of people who are united by our love for the Chernobyl Zone. We are a non-profit organisation and every year we raise thousands of euros for good causes in the Chernobyl Zone, such as firefighting equipment, monument restoration, animal welfare and more.
If you are planning or thinking about a trip to the zone, please check out our trips to Ukraine in 2023 and if you still have unanswered questions, feel free to get in touch!
