Chernobyl Exclusion Zone: Pripyat – Swimming Pool & School

Loading Likes...

The city of Pripyat was built in an effort to house workers of the growing Chernobyl Power Plant; which had originally been named for another city in the area. Given the ambition of expanding Chernobyl to contain 12 reactors the city was built to scale quickly and efficiently to support this ambition. The Soviets built resources, like this Olympic size swimming pool, to tempt citizens to move to Pripyat.
