31 Years After Chernobyl

The Chernobyl disaster was a catastrophic nuclear accident. It occurred on 26 April 1986 and since then, the city is empty. 

From 1986 to 2000, 350,400 people were evacuated and resettled from the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine.

Photographer Michal Huniewicz went to this place and took some amazing shots.

This is how Chernobyl looks after 31 Years from the accident.
