Garages in Pripyat


The garages on the southern outskirts of Pripyat once were full of cars and motorcycles owned by the residents, and no doubt a centre of social life on the weekends with husbands sneaking out to “work on the engine” with neighbours and few beers. After the Chernobyl accident, radioactive contamination signed the fate of those vehicles, all moved to a scrapyard and dismantled.

The most interesting object there today are remains of a mobile bridge used by the liquidators to cross small rivers and streams in the Chernobyl Zone during the clean-up operation.
