Am 26. April 1986 kam es in Block 4 des Kernkraftwerks in Tschernobyl in der Ukraine zu einer Kernschmelze, kurz darauf explodierte der Reaktor, radioaktives Material wurde in die Luft gestoßen, die Umgebung kontaminierte. Bis heute ist nicht ganz klar, wie viele Menschen aufgrund des Unglücks direkt oder durch Folgeschäden starben. Das Gebiet um den ehemaligen Reaktor ist nach wie vor unbewohnbar.

Wir zeigen euch, wie es 30 Jahre nach der nuklearen Katastrophe in Pripyat aussieht. Die heutige Geisterstadt lag nur vier Kilometer vom Reaktor entfernt und befindet sich somit in der unbewohnbaren 30-Kilometer-Zone.

PRIPYAT, UKRAINE - APRIL 09: A stairwell stands in abandoned elementary school number five on April 9, 2016 in Pripyat, Ukraine. Pripyat, built in the 1970s as a model Soviet city to house the workers and families of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, now stands abandoned inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a restricted zone contaminated by radiation from the 1986 meltdown of reactor number four at the nearby Chernobyl plant in the world's worst civilian nuclear accident that spewed radiaoactive fallout across the globe. Authorities evacuated approximately 43,000 people from Pripyat in the days following the disaster and the city, with its high-rise apartment buildings, hospital, shops, schools, restaurants, cultural center and sports facilities, has remained a ghost-town ever since. The world will soon commemorate the 30th anniversary of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Today tour operators bring tourists in small groups to explore certain portions of the exclusion zone.

A picture taken on April 8, 2016 shows a Ferris wheel in the ghost city of Prypyat near Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Ukraine is preparing to mark 30 years since the Chernobyl disaster, the world's worst nuclear accident whose death toll remains a mystery and which continues to jeopardise the local population's health. More than 200 tonnes of uranium remain inside the reactor that exploded three decades ago at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, raising fears there could be more radioactive leaks if the ageing concrete structure covering the stricken reactor collapses. / AFP / SERGEI SUPINSKY (Photo credit should read SERGEI SUPINSKY/AFP/Getty Images)
