15.00 — 15.30 The next point of our tour will be village Kopachi, it is only 4 km far from the place where the Chernobyl accident had happened. In the eighties, the village was blooming and in 1986 the village was damaged by radiation. It was decided not to carry out documents and immediately bury the entire village under a layer of earth. There you can see monument for soldiers, kindergarten, machine-tractor station because they have been left untouched. In other places there are only mounds that are marked with radiation warning signs.

Here you can also see pool «Lazurnyi», the central part of the city, from which the first injured people were brought after the accident in 1986, the building of the executive committee, as well as hotel Polesie, secondary school №1, and many other interesting places. Our guide will tell you detailed story about it.
You will see the Red forest, which experienced full power of the radiation wave. It was decided to cut it down and cover it with ground. Now there grow quite normal trees, but radiometer shows the real face of that place. We look at the forest from the safe distance, you should not go there.
