The village Paryshiv
Paryshiv - a former village in the exclusion zone, which is located seven kilometers from the city of Chernobyl, on the left bank of the Pripyat River.
Unfortunately, the exact year of origin of the village is unknown. But it is known that in 1887 already 670 people lived in the village. And in 1900, there were 159 courtyards and 924 inhabitants in Paryshiv. It is known that in the village there was an eight-year school, a club, a library, a medical office, a chapel, 2 windmills. According to the archaeological excavations that were carried out in the vicinity of the village, the remains of settlements from the Neolithic, Bronze Age and two Slavic settlements were found. Paryshiv was part of the Chernobyl region and was the center of the village council, where the village Koshevka was subordinated. By 1986, there were 1,046 people in the village. Evacuated on May 3, 1986. The village of Paryshiv was relocated after severe contamination with radionuclides, it was officially removed from the register only in the year of 1999,19.08.
After the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, the village turned out to be a pretty clean place in terms of the radiation situation. However, Paryshiv was completely evicted. But still, this did not prevent some residents from returning to their homeland. Today, this village is a village of “self-settlers” (these are people who returned after their evacuation in 1986 to their homes on the territory of the Exclusion Zone). People here live at the expense of their private households: garden, livestock, fishing, picking berries and mushrooms. For these people, radiation is not an authority.
Also in the village operates the base of the forest enterprise "Chernobyl Forest", and the park of fire and military equipment. While on an excursion in the village of Paryshiv , you can see the BAT-2 engineering vehicle - a tracked track wrapper based on a multipurpose tractor; the BRDM-1 - an amphibious vehicle. There is also a "fire tank" (tracked fire engine GPM-54), and four fire tankers ZIL.
