In an old godforsaken quiet pier, on the sandy bank of the river, only a few rusty old port cranes remind that there was once a new cargo port.
Abandoned cargo port, Chernobyl
This cargo port was build to provide all necessary supplements for the construction of new power units (5th and 6th reactors) and a modern city of nuclear power engineers. But because of the tragedy it could not fulfill its mission, as well as an amusement park.

After the disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, the fate of this port was prescribed. All this area, all the equipment located here, and all four cranes were used to receive cargos for the elimination of the consequences of the accident at the fourth reactor and the structures and materials for the construction of the first Sarcophagus.

Now these huge metal giants are abandoned and forgotten, and the floating crane slowly disappears under the water and soon only piles of scrap will remind of their existence.
