Ukraine: Chernobly to Open to Tourists

The name Chernobyl calls to mind the worst nuclear disaster in history, but in December managers at the nuclear power station hope to start a new chapter for the “Chernobyl Dead Zone.” Managers have announced that they hope to open the site to tourists in December following a ministerial review of safety rules. According to the rules under review, tourists will be required to wear personal security badges and apply for a guided tour at least 10 days prior to visiting. A typical tour through the station will include a trip through the power plant’s gates and into the radiation monitoring center and a walk through the abandoned Soviet town Pripyat. Tours typically cost between $100 and $300.
