Just over 30 years ago, one of the greatest tragedies of the latter 20th century occurred. The Chernobyl nuclear disaster affected the lives of thousands across the USSR, and left the nearby city Pripyat a ghost town. Walk through a virtual Chernobyl Exclusion Zone to learn the history of the place and discover the future that was lost.

An abandoned school awaits you; a place that echoes with childhood memories. Yet like a darkly surreal dream, it constantly blurs the boundaries between unsettling anxiety and the comfort of waking life. The brainchild of Maciek Szczerbowski and Chris Lavis, Gymnasia is a VR experience inspired by visionary theatre director Taduesz Kantor’s seminal play The Dead Class.
