Chernobyl Exclusion Zone: Daga Radar
Within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone there was a secret “object” and a small town (often referred to as “Chernobyl-2”) built around it. We had the opportunity to view the “object”, which was an extremely large over the horizon radar built by the Soviets. And were able to explore the nearby buildings – a former computer farm, and training facility. Beyond those there was a set of six large apartment blocks that we could enter, and both a Fire station and hospital to explore. This base was evacuated before the city of Pripyat, and there had been hopes and expectations that after cleansing with boric acid that they would be able to return.
