Chernobyl Zone Fire Lookout Tower in Paryshev village

Before infrared cameras, drones and other modern ways of spotting fires in the Chernobyl Zone, manned towers like this one in Paryshev village were crucial part of the firefighting infrastructure. Left to rust, with broken windows and dangerously swaying in strong winds, they offer incredible views over the entire exclusion zone.

      Hi, the Paryshev (or Paryshiv) village is about 7km west from the Chernobyl Town, I don’t have the exact coordinates for the tower though.
