Chernobyl Power Plant

Visited in 2015


There are two huge cooling towers close to building site of reactor 4 and 5 of the Chernobyl Power Plant. The towers were built to cool down the cooling water from the reactors because the cooling pond, was unable to cool two more reactors.

The towers were never completed. The accident stopped all works around the site in 1986. Years later the government decided to close down all reactors in Chernobyl.
