This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Chernobyl Power Plant, Kyiv Oblast, Ukraine
HBOs Chernobyl miniseries came out in early May 2019 and in just a few weeks quietly became television's highest rated show ever beating even the Game of Thrones.
The difference is that Chernobyl is not a fiction, but a real location. And you have a chance to see everything that amazes and scares you in the series for yourself.
You can stand in Legasov and Scherbynas shoes, see the fourth power unit and stay where the first liquidators of the Chernobyl catastrophe stood. Walk through the streets of the ghost town of Pripyat, where 50,000 people had lived until 1986.
The important thing is that today the whole trip is completely secure as the fourth reactor is safely covered by the New Safe Confinement, and in areas open to the public, the radiation does not exceed 2 Sv (for comparison, cabin crew receives an exposure dose of up to 9 Sv during transatlantic flights).
Time and cleaning efforts made the total background radiation in the Zone safe for humans, and the only radiation that can lead to acute radiation sickness remains inside the Chernobyl sarcophagus.
During one day spent in the Chernobyl Zone you get the radiation dose that is 160 less than one X-ray fluorography and 3,600 times less than one whole-body computed tomography!

April 27, 4:30 p.m., the city got empty forever. The whole operation took just 2.5 hours.
The HBO series creators paid much attention to the details and props, so that everything on the screen would truthfully convey the Soviet era and the year 1986.
