Chernobyl, Ukraine

From series “Top 14 Most Polluted Cities of the Planet”
Nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 on the Chernobyl plant, is considered one of the greatest ecological catastrophes in human history. Their consequences for the once flourishing industrial city became irreparable. Today Chernobyl is the empty ghost town, which is absolutely unsuitable for life. The huge emission of radioactive pollutants in the explosion became the largest in the whole history of atomic energy. Even today, it is very dangerous to visit the city, as the radiation level is still high.

According to official data, dozens of people have died from radiation. Thousands of people living in the field of damage suffered from oncological diseases. The terrible catastrophe had also added irreparable harm to the reproductive system of humans. The number of inborn pathologies among the children whose parents have experienced the disaster of the Chernobyl plant has increased a hundred times. There were many legends about the terrible mutants living in Chernobyl. Not all of these legends are a brain sprout.

Plant and animals, which can be seen in the city terrarium, look really terrible. Their appearance, to say the least, is unhealthy. There is a lot of effort to find the symmetrical leaf on one of the trees in Chernobyl. The news about the animals mutating in the city are kept secret. Some terrible shots can still be found in the net. One of the most dreadful and dangerous cities in the world attracts the researchers and the scientists, whose main subject is the mutating flora and fauna - the valuable material for the study.
