Chernobyl Travel Gadgets

Pripyat & Chernobyl Travel Gadgets

It has been 33 years since the explosion of reactor No. 4 of Chernobyl but although security measures increased (sarcophagus covering reactor 4), there is still radiation in the surroundings.

According to the tour guides, the radiation to which we expose ourselves when visiting Chernobyl is much higher than usual. But they also say that it is not greater than what would produce us take a couple of x-rays. Although in certain points of the route, it can even triple. the radiation. Very confusing, right?

We are not going to detail the accident because it is very well known and it is not the reason for this note. We will recommend which accessories to take to those who wish to visit this area and do the so-called dark tourism.

Before starting the note our maximum respect and remembrance for all the victims of this unfortunate event.

Exclusion areas

The visit to the exclusion areas of the Chernobyl reactor and the city of Pripyat can only be done with a guide. It is illegal, besides dangerous to make them without guides. But how protected are we doing with a guide? There are places like being near the reactor or at the Pripyat amusement park that still contain high levels of radiation.

There are radioactive contamination detectors at the end of the dark tour and leaving the exclusion zone. If this is detected, there is a procedure for decontamination. It reaches the clothes and the human body itself.

To reduce risks you can take extra precautions and bring the following travel gadgets to Chernobyl Zone

  • Dosimeters
  • Iodine tablets
  • Long pants
  • T-shirts, shirts or jackets with long sleeves
  • Footwear not opened
  • Long socks
  • Hat
  • That is to cover the largest amount of skin surface of the human body

Dosimeter: Chernobyl Travel Gadgets

Take iodine pills as a precaution may seem like an excess. But if you need them you already have them and will not wait for them to be given or if they are available. They prevent thyroid cancer from exposure to ionizing nuclear radiation.

Some European countries since 2015 are already taking this precaution (Belgium and France). these countries distribute Iodo tablets to the inhabitants within a 60-mile radius of a nuclear power plant

Radiation levels

The difference between the tolerated levels lies in the risk-benefit that their use implies.

Finally, the radiation is classified into colored zones, from gray (milder radiation) to red (harmful radiation).

  • Gray or blue zone: from 0.0025 to 0.0075 mSv / h.
  • Green zone: from 0.0075 to 0.025 mSv / h.
  • Yellow zone: from 0.025 to 1 mSv / h.
  • Orange zone: from 1 to 100 mSv / h.
  • Red zone: more than 100 mSv / h.

Radiation in Pripyat & Chernobyl

In Pripyat there are still areas in which the level of radioactivity is twelve times higher than that which exists in the capital, Kiev. Especially dangerous are the roofs that are still standing, since they have the highest radiation rates. Also some games of the amusement park.
The most advisable thing is to always carry a dosimeter controlling the level of radioactivity.

Pripyat & Chernobyl Travel Gadgets

A year ago (June 8, 2018), New York Times: Milk in towns 225 kilometers away from the Chernobyl nuclear plant exceed up to five times the official limit of the Ukrainian government for adults, and more than 12 times the limit for children, according to scientists at the Greenpeace Research Laboratories at the University of Exeter in Great Britain and the Ukrainian Institute of Agricultural Radiology.

Without a major intervention, radiation will remain above the adult level until at least 2040 and above the level for children even longer, they predicted.

Tower Bridge in London. Anniversary of its opening

Tower Bridge: 125th Anniversary of its opening

The Tower Bridge in London, England, celebrates the 125th anniversary of its opening. The design was chosen among more than 50 alternative projects, some very extravagant.

Known throughout the world for its two Gothic towers under which the bridge opens to let the ships pass. This monument is one of the obligatory points to visit in London, the British capital.

The current design was one of the 50 that tried to give a solution to the need for a new fluvial crossing. He had to allow the crossing between the banks and passage to the ships. At that time the port of London was the largest concentration of ships in the world.


50 designs for the Tower Bridge

 The head of the Tower Bridge, Chris Earlie, explains that there were very extravagant and very creative ideas. Here are some examples

The civil engineer Sir Joseph Bazalgette proposed this traditional design, based on the towers of London. The bridge was very high with long accesses. But it turns out that it was discovered that the horses that pulled the cars would be exhausted before reaching the top of the bridge. There were other designs with eccluds, rotating and even with tunnels.

Finally he won the project presented by the engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry and the architect Sir Horace Jones. A bridge that opens in the center, with huge chambers at the feet of the two towers to accommodate the counterweights that swing downward as the two parts of the walkway rise up.

The 125th anniversary was June 30 of this year 2019. Some of the alternative designs are exhibited in the exhibition halls. There were also actors who recreated the workers, engineers and inhabitants of the Victorian era.

The construction of the Tower Bridge

It worked for eight years to build the Tower Bridge, which was inaugurated on June 30, 1894 by the Prince of Wales Albert Edward of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Future Edward VII). The same day of its inauguration, the prestigious specialized magazine The Builder described it as monstrous and grotesque. Its construction cost about 1.6 million pounds, which is equivalent to approximately 250 million dollars today

Courtesy London Metropolitan Archives


In the first year, the bridge operated by a steam engine was opened more than 6,000 times. Now it works with power generators and grid electricity and opens about 850 times a year. Most of the bridge openings are due to the passage of tourist boats, which must be notified 24 hours in advance. River traffic has priority over cars and pedestrians.

The old steam engine can be accessed by accessing one of the towers and is a steel and iron structure that combines three different types of bridges: suspension, beam and swing.

Visitors to the Tower

tower bridge - London 125th opening

Some 870,000 people visited the interior of the monument in 2018. The money raised goes to a charity of the City of London and adds more than 6 million pounds a year. There is a replica of London Tower bridge in the Chinese city of Suzhou and a future copy is prepared in the Philippines.
