Chernobyl Amusement Park

Chernobyl Amusement Park

For the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Chernobyl accident they are going to turn the exclusion zone into a giant museum-park. It is believed that excursions there will be popular among tourists.
This place used to be a home for someone. After the explosion this area became “a desert island.” Chernobyl became a synonym of “death” and many hearts are still wrung when this tragedy is mentioned. However it doesn’t prevent them from turning this evil place into an amusement park.

  1. Triumph of socialism, the Chernobyl incident: let’s experiment with the reactor, and not bother to inform the nightshift! It’s sounds like where I work…

  2. Your site now has pop up spams. I will report it to google and also remove it from my bookmarks. SOrry that you assumed you have such a great website that adding a few pop ups won’t annoy the visitors and drive them off.

  3. Chernobly is the pearl of the Soviet experiment. Nothing shows the success of communism like that glistening…Err Glowing city on the hill.

  4. Hey!! Let’s all go to Russia and get exposed to radiation!!! Wheee!!! Oh yeah, tourists…. If they sign up, just shoot them please.

    And it’s DESERTED island, not DESERT island.

    Look up the definitions of Desert, and Deserted….

    • Yeah, calm down 🙂

      Oh and desert island is perfectly fine. An island that is barren of all life. Deserted implies something different and does not fit the use that the writer of this page intended.

    • You receive a dose of radiation every day you are alive. Radiation becomes dangerous when you receive a large dose in a short period of time. If this happens, your body cannot repair the damage and problems occur. So long as you monitor your dosage rate by wearing a dosimeter and carrying a scintillation type Geiger counter (a Geiger-Muller tube type, like the CDV-700 models, could become super-saturated and give false low readings), most places in Pripyat can be safely explored to an extent. You probably would not want to go near the containment vessel or the plant itself as that would still be highly dangerous. Remember that a day trip is not the same as living there. That WOULD be dangerous.

  5. Went there last year, a very interesting and amazing place to visit. The dead silence in such a built up and urban area is very eerie indeed.

      • Yeah I took loads of photos similar to those in this post except it was the middle of winter so every thing was covered in snow. We went into one of the primary schools near by and all of the childrens books were still on the desks with the last date entered being the 26th April 1986. It is indeed like stepping back into Soviet times and like I say very creepy.

  6. The place should be left to rot in peace. Radiation can save it from the destiny of Auschwitz, which became a tourist attraction with a limited value to speak of the horrors which happened there.

  7. The US has it’s disaster areas also: Love Canal, New York, Picher, Oklahoma, the Rust Belt… Industrialization has both beneficial and deleterious effects.

  8. I love all the communist symbols all around. It looks like a really creepy ghost town, Pripyat, Chernobyl was such a terrible accident though it makes sense.

  9. Went there this summer. Can’t wait to get back. I so much hope I could have made the trip ten years ago, though, when the rampaging hordes of one day tourists were still absent. Luckily we had another day just to ourselves.
