|A travel advisory was issued for Chernobyl by Tom G. This advisory took effect on April 26, 2008 12:00 AM (UTC) and has no date of expiration.|
|Reason for Advisory:
There is still a very real risk of illness from radiation in the area surrounding the power plant. There are many areas that are gated off to protect visitors from lethal doses of radiation. Visits should be kept brief. Tours are able to be arranged. Details are available in the Wikitravel link on the page.
Radiation has been shown to linger in produce grown for miles surrounding the area. If you should actually visit Chernobyl, use caution and do so at your own risk.
The reason for these advisories are to alert you to potential problems on your road of travel. We do our best to strive for accuracy, but if you think this advisory is inaccurate in any way, please contact us through the link on the bottom of the location's page.
