The Exclusion Zone

The Chernobyl Zone, The 30 Kilometer Zone, The Exclusion Zone, The Fourth Zone, or simply The Zone.



It has many names...

The area adjoining the site of the disaster was originally divided into 4 concentric zones.

The fourth-most contaminated zone had a radius of 30 km (19 mi) from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

The border of the zone was later adjusted to better parallel the locations of highest contamination.


The Zone is the 30 km exclusion zone around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster.

Inside the zone is another 10km border, the last one of it's kind.

After this one, things are really getting interesting.
