Drone Footage Captures Chernobyl Looking More Post-Apocalyptic than Ever


This short film put together by filmmaker Danny Cook shows Pripyat which is an abandoned city near to Chernobyl, Ukraine. The city of Pripyat was quickly evacuated in 1986 after a disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power station. The quick evacuation meant that many items and personal belongings were left behind making it appear as if its a city from a post-apocalyptic world.

Entering the city is still dangerous due to radiation although it is allowed providing you take a guide with you. Armed with a geiger counter and his camera Cook explored the city. He also used a DJI Phantom 2 drone and a GoPro3+ to capture the abandoned city from above like we've never seen before.
