Chornobyl 360 exhibition opening

  • America House

The entire exhibition will be devoted to the 30th anniversary of the industrial disaster that occurred at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant April 26, 1986. It combines several areas: photo, audio, video and, of course, virtual reality experiences. 

You will be able to feel the effect of presence in the exclusion zone, experience the exciting feeling of your own flight over the city of Pripyat and discover inaccessible places and unique objects.

The construction of the one of the largest nuclear facilities in the world - Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant - was started in the eastern part of the Belarusian-Ukrainian marshy woodlands 46 years ago.

The land in this area had been recognized as unproductive and compliance of water supply, transport and sanitary protection zone made it an ideal location for this project. The human began to actively change the landscape of these areas to fit his needs taking more and more space from nature.

On April 26, 1986 at 1:23:47 a major accident in the history of nuclear power stopped this process. The territories recently conquered by people were resettled and the 30 km zone around Chornobyl nuclear power plant was closed.

Thirty years after the disaster the exclusion zone around the plant has acquired hundreds of legends. For many it newly evolved into terra incognita. Over the past decade "the zone" began to attract more and more "pioneers." Someone loves it, someone is afraid of it, others just make money. But very few people remain indifferent.

The Chornobyl nuclear power plant and the Exclusion zone around it turned into Ding an sich. And regardless of our knowledge and feelings they continue to live their lives. Nature has returned almost everything that the human had previously took. Human, however, continues to build there one of the most complex engineering structures in the world.
