Have you ever seen wild animals walking free through the city? Come to Pripyat, where this situation is quite normal.
How to see animals living in the ghost town in Chernobyl
The exclusion zone has become a kind of reserve for wild animals, where all animals from the local forests walk freely around the city. Here in the abandoned buildings a bear can settle for night, deer, foxes and wolves can wander around searching for food carelessly left by tourists. And a giant catfish hunting pigeons live in the river.

How to do?

1. To see animals in spite of their huge amount will not be easy because they are scared away by crowds of tourists.
2. Have a good look around, maybe they are very close, just hiding.
