Hot news! Our Private Chernobyl Filming Locations Tour in Vilnius is ready and we are very excited to show you the best of it!

2. Did you know that we have (decommissioned) Ignalina Nuclear Power plant with two RBNK-1500 reactors which you can visit?

3. Did you know that with the same key you could unlock every third house door in the blueprint districts?
