How to sneak up into Buryakivka radioactive cemetery in Chernobyl
The equipment cemetery used during liquidation of the consequences of the Chernobyl accident Buryakivka is a protected facility. The reason for this is the high radiation of many objects buried on this territory.

Oddviser doesn't recommend any civil activity at equipment cemetery - it's very dangerous for your health and illegal as well.

How to do?

1. Equipment cemetery Buryakivka is located near 50 kilometers from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
2. Follow the map. A small place in the cemetery where equipment still placed is located at the right lower corner of the cemetery square.
3. Equip with pliers. The fence is made of barbed wire. Be careful.
4. Be sure to take the Geiger counter or any other dosimeter.

Where to do?
