Prypiat was founded in 1970 so that workers and their familities of infamous Chernobyl Nuclear plant have a town to live, because the actual town Chernobyl is quite a small village and a few miles further away from the plant than Prypiat. Prypiat's population had been around 50,000 prior to the Chernobyl disaster. The town now is abandoned and you cross three military check points before you get in. The radiation is still a few times more the average.
