Kopači village

On the way to the power station, there are the remains of the village of Kopači.

The town was hit by the radioactive fallout, subsequently evacuated and buried in the ground to contain the radioactivity.

Only the post office and kindergarten remain.

Inside the school you walk on the debris.

Here are the bunk beds, the dusty slippers, the toys.

The blankets, the pillows, the notebooks, the pastel colored drawings, the musical scores and the rickety piano.

Children were the first victims of thyroid cancer.

Today there are no children or teenagers in the contaminated area: entry to anyone under the age of 17 is prohibited.
