Like my earlier videos, here is a video I made while driving around the abandoned streets of Pripyat. Pripyat was a city created by the USSR in 1970 for workers from the nearby Chernobyl nuclear power plant to live. The almost 50,000 residents were evacuated 36 hours after the accident.

The song at the end of the video is "Wonderful Far-Away" from the Soviet TV miniseries Guest from the Future (Гостья из будущего) from 1985. The song also features in a documentary about Pripyat before the nuclear disaster.
