Frozen in time

Founded in 1970 to hose the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers; Pripyat was home to about 50,000 Russian men, women and children.

In 1986 following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster the whole city was abandoned.

You may recognise some of the buildings and places from Activision’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Here are some amazing pictures. Deviant man’s pictures of Pripyat 2009.

There are also many more pictures and videos on the net.

Strange, poignant, real.
