Chernobyl Museum, Ukraine
The world's worst nuclear accident, Chernobyl is a scar that still remains on the landscape of Ukraine to this day. Everyone alive at the time remembers when they found out about the Chernobyl accident, and in many ways the behaviour of the Soviet government after the accident hastened the demise of Soviet power.
This museum is a fascinating overview of the accident and its aftermath. First to the scene of the accident were the firefighters, so it is particularly poignant that the museum is housed in an old fire station.
The section detailing the truly heroic deeds of those who were involved in the clean-up just after the accident - all of who subsequently died - is especially inspiring.
Your guide will show you around the museum, translating and explaining the displays where necessary. Please note that this museum is in Kiev, not in Chernobyl itself. It is therefore completely safe to visit.

Positioned above the Dnipro River, the Kyiv-Pecherska Lavra (monastery) was founded in 1051 and is a stunning site. Initially dug out of a series of caves, the monastery subsequently flourished above ground too, with a stunning collection of gold-domed churches.
