I took the two day trip to Semipalatinsk and it worked out well.

We had interesting visits to the Test Center Museum, to the original ground zero and to Atomic Lake. The guides were were knowledgeable and had lots of good information. It's a big area so there was a lot of driving, but that is unavoidable.

We spent one night at the Hotel Mayak. This was formerly a high-end Soviet-era visitor's hotel and felt very 1980s Soviet in style, but it was actually very comfortable.

The guide and driver were very professional, did a good job of looking after me and made sure everything worked well. Thank you!

It was an interesting trip and I recommend it.
