“Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark Twain) - Photo by Jan Bommes
"It was a dream that we all had through our "urbex life" until now. The four of us really went to Chernobyl. The four of us, that were Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex, Torsten from North Urbex and my wife and I. Freddy had taken care of the organization, and there we were - right at the city sign of the famous abandoned city of Pripyat. It was an awe-inspiring experience walking the streets of this city that has been turned into a nuclear wasteland by the largest catastrophe of the 20th century next to the two World Wars."

Demolition of this abandoned hospital has already been approved (Nov. 2017). Due to vandalism and natural decay, there is not much left of the olf hopital's subsance.

The cost of demolition and disposal is estimated at around one Million Euros, so it is still unsure if and when the demolition will happen....(more)

Only four weeks after my first visit to this place, I got the opportunity to return for a revisit together with my wife
and our friend Freddy from Nordgriller Urbex.
We had planned a short tour through the South of Denmark and since the initial photos from this little house didn't seem to be enough, we made this one our first spot of the day.
It was all easy enough - parking not too far away, access through the front door just like the last time.
What I had forgotten since the first time was that the attic - the place where most of the nice shots could be taken - was the least safe spot to be in that house.....(more)
