Will you consider visiting Chernobyl as a tourist?

The Chernobyl disaster was caused by lax Soviet safety standards. Do you feel secure enough to visit that site now as a welcome tourist?

Zone of alienation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
Current Population
Thousands of residents refused to be evacuated from the zone or illegally returned there later. Over the decades this primarily elderly population has dwindled, falling below 400 in 2009. Approximately half of these resettlers live in the town of Chernobyl; others are spread in villages across the zone. After recurrent attempts at expulsion, the authorities became reconciled to their presence and even allowed limited supporting services for them. The population also includes some vagabonds and other marginalized persons from the outside world. These people (known as "samosely", translated as "self-settlers" or squatters) declare their strong commitment to the surrounding nature and rural lifestyle. Samosely usually deny or are resigned to any significant damage to their health resulting from the high levels of radiation in the environment.

I can't think of a good reason to go there.  If you live there, fine, know what is there and be ready for it.  I don't know why I'd want to go.

I don't hate leftists. There's a difference between hate and pity.

 

Is it not true that they are allowing some "OLDER LOCALs" to return to relatively close to the SITE ...and also the FOREST and the Environment is "RECOVERING"

Perhaps would like to see results.  Seems there are those that came back because there was no other place to go.  They are suviving and they are growing crops and making wine.

This maybe the future of all.

Hi Len, I think that you should look into the London Pass . It will give you free entry to over 55 of the big attractions and you can buy a 1,2,3 or 6 day pass.
