Inspired by the tremendous success of Chornobyl TV series, the members of Tourism and Promotions Department of Kyiv City State Administration and local tourism operators developed and presented a new route. It is called "Across the shooting locations of Chornobyl mini-series in Kyiv". The press office of Kyiv City State Administration reported this on July 12.
Kyiv-based locations are included in the tour, which takes up to four hours to complete. Among these locations are Khreschatyk and Bohdana Khmelnytskoho Streets, as well as Chornobyl National Museum and the Arch of Nations' Friendship.
"Thanks to the attributes, one can dive into the atmosphere of the period after the nuclear disaster at Chornobyl nuclear plant. Before the tour begins, the bus is processed with "special fluid" for protection against radioactive dust. So during the tour, the visitors can feel what happened 33 years ago, understand how Kyiv survived this horrible disaster. We hope that the route will become among those most popular in Kyiv", said Anton Taranenko, head of the Tourism and Promotions Department of Kyiv City State Administration.
Since July 15, the tour can be ordered at visitkyiv.travel, from certain tourist operators and the guides that developed this route.
Chornobyl exclusion zone has seen a huge tourist boom after the success of the namesake TV series released by HBO TV channel.
