As a true travel fanatic you have probably seen the HBO series 'Chernobyl'. Spectacular, sinister, dark and shockingly realistic. That's how the series was received. In the west, people were generally more positive about it than in Russia.

In any case, there is no doubt that the series is extremely popular. According to many, the 5 episodes give a fairly realistic representation of what happened in the days, weeks and months around 26 April 1986.
