The Telecommunication centre is located centrally in Pripyat and citizens would come here to post letters and parcels, it was also possible to send and receive telegrams here or use the bank of payphones.
Inside much of the place is destroyed, however a wonderful mural still covers the wall on the left as you enter.
This mural was also used for the cover of Pink Floyd’s single “Marooned” and in the music video.
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!
