Interesting facts- Ghost town, Prypiat

The Ghost town of Prypiat is in the Kiev Oblast province in Ukraine

The city was built to house workers of the Chernobyl Nuclear plant in the 1970s… and we all know what happened next. After the meltdown in 1986 a 19 mile exclusion area (the Zone of Alienation) was set-up around the city, though a few residents resolutely decided to stay put.

For years the area was strictly of-limits to travellers, but amazingly there are now several companies offering tourists trips there.
