Template:Semey is a city in Kazakhstan. Semey is famous by soviet nuclear poligon located not far from city.

Hitching Out

South towards Taldy-Kurgan, Almaty

There is a huge roundabout connecting two bridges on the left riverside. Walk along the 6 lanes road in southern direction. From busstop take bus #41 to "Myasokombinat". Then cross the road and wait for a bus #13 to "kolonka" busstop. Bus will turn left and you should follow 4 lane road. Right after busstop is a place where locals trying to get a lift. Walk a bit among road and start hitching.

Hitching In

Bus station and two train station on both riversides generate enough route buses in any direction.

Places to Visit

Explore new bridge across the river. Looks like spaceship in a jungle.

Places to Avoid

Semey nuclear poligon is highly contaminated by Caesium-137.
