The southeastern parts of Belarus had no infrastructure and no workforce to serve the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Yet this land suffered the most from the radioactive fallout of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
On some bright October day you just feel like running out into that lovely nature that bursts with colors and lusciousness. You would love to walk through the grasslands and the golden birch groves. Until the Geiger counter brings you back to reality.
A lovely place to see, but definitely no home to stay. For centuries to come.
