Ok, so as you got to this page, a small disclaimer.
Normally, at 'about us' section you will find some special marketing stuff that should explain, why this particular company is so cool.
I think, not this time.
So, you are at ChernobylStore.
We are not a "classic" travel agency. We are the research team of Pripyat.com project.
Since 2006 we do field- and archival work to find real and detailed information about the Zone and its locations, to know more and understand more.
At some point we came to such a stage when we needed to share this with others — so now you can go there with us.
Despite we use it (well, just for convenience), we really dislike the word "tour". Because we take people not to entertain, but to introduce, enlight hearths and change souls.
To us it's important to grow the interest of any real events in the history of Chernobyl, and we really like to support that as far as possible.
Therefore, we do exploration trips to Chernobyl Zone. As Pripyat.com, we stood at the origins of these tours (on that time we were bringing there big buses of people) and have done a lot to achieve their present form — and regular travel agencies that make just trips to the Zone mostly use our achievements even up to present days.
The Zone is our home.
We are not afraid of harsh routes.
We know, that true Zone is like a piece of concrete to fall on.
We are dark and pretty crazy, but reasonable.
We pay very very much attention to safety.
And we love science.
We understand, that our way is not for all.
Few times we had visitors, that were a little sceptical — and how they were looking shocked around when we returned back to Kyiv with them.
Because it is all about changing minds and unleashing quite intimate personal experience.
So, let's go?
Hm, yes — so why we called it "ChernobyStore"?
Consider this an slight irony. We pretty nice know how companies do they work in the Zone, and how often behind the fancy wrapping is the pure money making with minor knowledge.
For us the Zone is life, so we have no need to pretend.
...however, for sure we can show you 'Iconic Ferris Wheel Of Pripyat' too.
Alex & Crew.
