There is a day engraved in the memory of everyone … That day in which the worst nuclear disaster in history occurred.
More than thirty years later, the Chernobyl nuclear plant and the extensive contaminated area that surrounds it (exclusion zone) has been frozen in time, just as everything was that fateful April 26, 1986.
The effects of abandonment or the impact of nature on the ground are evident in an area already punished in itself. But that does not prevent at least 40 people from living in the exclusion zone of about 30 km in perimeter.
This is how Chernobyl is currently … A place that is gradually disappearing and that if nothing prevents it, an important chapter in the history of mankind will be followed.
