During the two-day Chernobyl trip in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the body receives a dose of radiation comparable to 0,001 dose by X-ray scan or to several hours spent in an airplane. In numbers, you will receive 5-7 microsieverts of gamma radiation – an absolutely non harmful dose of radiation. For comparison, most of the nuclear power plants around the world have a safety limit for their employees set at 50-100 microsieverts per day. Most probably you will get more radiation during your flight to Kiev.
