Chernobyl Trip Part Six - Culture Centre
Pripyat Culture Center
Another short walk from the Pripyat Fair was the Culture Centre, or Community Centre. This building housed many facilities for the wellbeing of the residents in Pripyat, including a boxing ring, sport hall, a small swimming pool, a lecture theater and meeting rooms.
Sports Hall, Swimming Pool and Lecture Theater
Walking upstairs, we found the sports hall, which was in very good condition compared to the other sports centre in Pripyat - the roof was still watertight. Two goal frames sat at either end, paint and shattered glass littered the floor.
Culture Centre Entrance And Square
Moving into the main entrance at the upper floor, we were greeted by bright 80s wall painting and huge amounts of broken glass. The front of the build was originally fully faced with glass, but of course that had been broken inwards by falling trees and debris. In front of the building was the iconic curved structure and a few ponds, now very overgrown and full of mosquitoes!
