All dressed up and no place to go. Chernobyl ghost town 2008

The USSR was gearing up for the May Day celebration and Chernobyl was all decorated, even a Farris wheel. Then Chernobyl nuke blew. Even though it was a miniscule event compared to the one in Japan, it’s a ghost town today. Has been a ghost town since April 27, 1986.


Lots of pages and photos of a 2008 visit:
