On 26th April 1986, reactor no. 4 at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the former Soviet Union, went into meltdown. The nearby city of Pripyat, constructed especially to house the power plant workers and their families, was evacuated overnight. Now in the Ukraine, Pripyat still stands, largely untouched. The nuclear exclusion zone has spent the last thirty-plus years slowly returning to a state of nature. Thanks to the almost complete lack of human habitation, it has become one of the most untouched and biodiverse areas in the world, whilst still being a tourist attraction - an easy day trip from Kiev.
