Vilnius and the Lithuania's second-largest city, Kaunas, plan to organize excursions for tourists to visit places were the HBO's hit TV show Chernobyl was filmed.

Kaunas Tourism Information Center says an excursion called 'Chernobyl.Kaunas' will be organized as of early July and it will invite tourists to visit places where the series was shot and listen to unheard stories from the set.

Participants will be able to visit open city spaces, but also closed locations where the five-installment series was created.

Earlier, plans to organize similar excursions were also announced by Vilnius Tourism Information Center.

HBO's Chernobyl series premiered earlier this year, and the majority of the scenes were shot at the now-closed Ignalina nuclear power plant in Lithuania, which had the same-type reactor as the Chernobyl nuclear facility, as well as a number of areas in Vilnius and Kaunas.
