The village Teremtsy

The village in 30 km Zone

     Teremtsy - the former village, which is located between the Dnipro and Pripyat, 23 kilometers from the city of Chernobyl. The village is located in the south-eastern part of the Exclusion Zone, the border between Ukraine and the Republic of Belarus is four kilometers away.

 

     The time of foundation of the village is unknown. According to the chronicles, Teremtsy existed in the time of Bohdan Khmelnytsky, and was a border town. It is assumed that there were princely chambers, from which the village received such a name.

     In 1913, there was a built church in the village, which was destroyed in Soviet times.

     It is known that in the village there was an eight-year school, a club, a library.

 

     The village is surrounded by the rivers Pripyat and the Dnipro. This made it possible in the early 1980s to create a fish pond in the north of the village. After the Chernobyl accident, the pond was not in operation. But in 1996, the pond was handed over to the Ivankovskiy fish factory. After a couple of years of restoration work, carp, grass carp and silver carp were launched into the pond.

     The population before 1986 was 463 inhabitants.

 

     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, Teremtsy were 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.
