A young couple who saw their apartment on the Chernobyl TV show decided to refurbish it with Soviet decor and rent it out for £ 61 a night.

Linas and his girlfriend Rasa live in an apartment in Vilnius, Lithuania, in a neighborhood that was shown in the show, but only when they saw their balcony on the series.

The one-bedroom and one-bathroom accommodation was originally owned by Linas' grandparents for more than 40 years, but according to the couple little has changed.

& # 39; Everything in the flat – the interior, the cutlery and even the bedding are all exactly the same as in the TV series. & # 39; Rasa explains.

People then started giving the pair of Soviet items they no longer needed – from curtains, cups, books, and even furniture.

The apartment also has original magazines, vinyls and devices, such as a working Lithuanian potato grating machine that won a design prize in the USSR and was exhibited in the national gallery.
