A kindergarten on the Northern edge of Pripyat converted to a contaminated soil research laboratory nicknamed ‘Radek’ (лаборатории «Радэк»). The building contains thousands of soil samples from the entire Zone and further parts of the Soviet Union, experiments’ documentation and geological maps of the area.
Some parts of the building were left untouched and still have children toys scattered on the floor.
