Prypiat (Ukraine) was founded in 1970 to house the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant workers, officially proclaimed a city in 1979, and was abandoned in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster. Its population had been around 50,000 before the nuclear accident and has now been abandoned for 25 years. It is believed that it will take nearly 300 years before much of the radiation is gone and it will not be possible for humans to safely live in the exclusion zone for well over a thousand years. The Chernobyl disaster froze the Soviet Union’s city of the future in time. Within 36 hours the entire city of Pripyat was evacuated leaving the city in a zombie state.
