Welcome to Homel

The Homel region took the brunt of the 1986 Chornobyl disaster, which had devastating health effects on those living in this area. The hardest-hit zone – near the Ukrainian border about 100km southwest of Homel city – is now the Paleski State Radioecological Reserve, a huge swath of contaminated land full of abandoned villages and wild animals. Homel city was not as hard hit, and visiting the city today is perfectly safe.
