There are four of them here. Which one would you choose to get a little thrill.
Four abandoned, forgotten port giants remaine standing on the banks of the Pripyat River in deaf silence waiting for a cargo that will never come again. One of them, eaten by rust already disappears in the abyss of the backwater. Rush to climb to the top of one of the remaining ones until they all turn into a a handful of scrap metal.

How to do?
1. Go to the old cargo port near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
2. Climb to the top of the multi-ton giant and make a selfie on its arrows.
Oddviser categorically does not recommend daredevils to risk your live and climb up a fairly worn-out construction.
Where to do?
Abandoned cargo port
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.26
