Urban Explorer Finds An Abandoned Church In Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

Urban Explorer Finds An Abandoned Church In Chernobyl Exclusion Zone

30 years after the catastrophic disaster at reactor number four, Chernobyl remains a ghost town and is still shrouded in uncertainty and mystery.

There is an exclusion zone, or the area of 'alienation', where there are only residents who have refused to leave. The high levels of radiation make the entire place dangerous to inhabit, meaning those who are working to rebuild the sarcophagus have to work five hours a day for one month before being given half a month's worth of rest.

Guy Visits Chernobyl And Finds Exact 'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Location

The church lies deep inside Chernobyl's restricted zone in the 'forbidden' village of Krasne to the west of the Pripyat River, but its untouched remains are in an oddly pristine condition.

An urban explorer discovered the building which, along with all its surroundings, was completely evacuated in the aftermath of the nuclear accident in 1986.

"It was amazing to see a holy house in such a decaying zone, in a condition like this," Andre Friesen, a Chernobyl explorer, who documented the church's miraculous state, said.
