Andre Friesen, a seasoned Chernobyl explorer, from Herford, Germany, who documented the Church”s miraculous state, said: “It was amazing to see a holy house in such a decaying zone, in a condition like this.
“The atmosphere in there was incredible after seeing all the rundown houses in the city of Pripyat.
“It”s a drastic contrast to most buildings in the exclusion zone, which is still not prohibited to be lived in by humans.”
It is thought that occasionally priests return to the church to hold special rituals.
On the altar, Andre unearthed a letter from a previous priest urging any visitors to take good care of the church.
Andre said: “I”ve been exploring Pripyat since 2008 and I”ve never seen anything quite like this before.
“I”m hoping to return in spring 2017, to see if anything else like this still exists.”
It was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history.
The facility spewed out radioactive waste for nine days.
Ukrainian officials don”t believe the largely abandoned exclusion zone will not be safe for 20,000 years.
Despite this, two Chinese firms are planning to build a new power plant there.
Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko grew up alongside his brother in the former Soviet Union in a proud military family.
His dad Vladimir, who worked in the region, was in charge of cleaning up the radioactive waste.
It was feared he had exposed himself to his children during this time.
The Kiltschko”s dad was tragically diagnosed with cancer largely due to his heroic efforts at the site.
