Buryakovka Vehicle Graveyard - Chernobyl

After the Chernobyl accident a vast number of vehicles were used around the site to aid with the clean-up. This is the graveyard for those non-military vehicles such as trucks, cranes, bulldozers, helicopters and so on. The vast majority of the vehicles have been buried due to their extremely high radioactivity.

You can explore the vehicles for no more than 10 minutes before levels of exposure becomes unsafe.
