Yandex, the Russian web giant has released a remarkable set of 360 degree Street Panoramas in the area around Chernobyl, Ukraine. Coverage extends from roads outside the nuclear power plant to the nearby abandoned ghost town of Pripyat.
Until the 1986 nuclear disaster, 50,000 people lived in the city. Subsequently, the high levels of radioactivity forced the entire population to leave their homes and belongings behind. As you navigate around you can clearly see the empty, decaying structures and overgrown verges. The fact the images were taken in Winter, with snow cover adds to their haunting appearance.
The site is in Russian, but if you’re familiar with Google Maps and Street View, you should find navigation straightforward – just click the on screen arrows to move around, or one of the blue lines on the map to teleport elsewhere
