Pioneer camp "Fairytale"

"Fairytale" in the Chernobyl exclusion zone

     Before the accident, sanatoriums, recreation centers, pioneer camps were located on the territory of the modern Exclusion Zone, which at one time took an infinite number of both children and adults. Now these former educational institutions, by the efforts of time, nature, looters have turned into ruins.

     Being in the Chernobyl zone on an excursion with the company CHERNOBYL ADVENTURE you can not ignore the Pioneer camp “Fairytale”.

     The place here is very picturesque. "Fairytale" is located among a pine forest on the banks of the Uzh River, near the village of Ilovnitsa, 16 kilometers from the city of Chernobyl and 30 kilometers from Pripyat. The pioneer camp was intended for summer holidays for children of nuclear power plant employees. Here on the territory there was a gym, a basketball and volleyball court, a football field, a summer outdoor pool, a wooden sauna, a large open-air stage.

     According to the civil defense plan at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, personnel should have been evacuated to this place in the event of an emergency. Therefore, when the accident at the Chernobyl station occurred, for a couple of years here in the pioneer camp "Fairytale", there lived workers and engineers who were engaged in servicing the nuclear power plant. The station’s operational staff was brought to Skazochny on the evening of April 30. From there we went for a shift, in the city of Chernobyl did a bus transfer to BTR-ry and then rushed to the nuclear power plant.

     It is known that one of the liquidators - the artist Peter Emets, wrote sketches here. Later, he will release albums that will include his wonderful landscapes of "Fairytale".
