Ukraine Opens Chernobyl for Tourism

If you are into that Zombie crap, Ukraine is opening up quarantined Chernobyl zone for tourists. I can only imagine it to be popular between zombie lovers and amateur photographers.


The zone has been accessible to visitors only with permission from a special department of the Emergency Ministry, which ran the tours.</p>

The ministry said it would now authorise private companies to carry out guided tours of the area.

The sad truth is that the scenery is the attraction — not the history. You must not forget that generations were wiped out creating gaps in the demographic. This disaster has crippled Ukraine due to Russia's mismanagement; or did it bring fame in the mid-stages of Ukrainian independence?

Here are some photos Pripyat, an abandoned city in the zone of alienation, from Collin Davis's gallery:
