Nevertheless, according to historian Matthew White, it was an open secret that the country’s federal structure was “window dressing” for Russian dominance.

Soviet Wastelands run a huge number of group tours throughout the year. We never cancel our fixed date or private Soviet Tours, and all of our tours are capped at a strict maximum of 20 people to ensure a personal experience. We always keep our tours as cheap as possible, to encourage all walks of life and all ages to come and see our destinations.

Alongside our local teams, all of our group tours come with an experienced, bilingual Soviet Wastelands guide who gives you the opportunity to do things you couldn’t do without them there to make it happen – something which is important when off the beaten track or in strictly controlled destinations. We have a great reputation for fun guides who bring out the travel bug in people while ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

From the nuclear wastelands of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone to the badlands that make up the 4 rebel republics of the former Soviet Union, there is nowhere we can’t take you. Book your tour today!
