Prypiat was the town closest to the Chernobyl nuclear plant. When one of the reactors suffered a catastrophic failure in April 1986, the town was quickly evacuated and a 10 km radius exclusion zone established around the plant. Prypiat was abandoned.
A quarter of a century later, the city’s streets are choked with saplings; the forest is reclaiming the land. Meanwhile, in every abandoned house one can see evidence of the speedy departure - children’s dolls left on beds, homework left on school desks.
