Eating

Most day trips involve lunch at a old-school Soviet stolovaya (cafeteria) in Chornobyl town – an experience in its own right for the uninitiated (don't worry, all ingredients are brought from Kyiv). Check to make sure it's included in your tour price. For overnighters, the hotels serve set meals as part of the package. Refrain from eating any wild berries or other fruits around these parts.
