Great Getaway! Ukraine to open Chernobyl area to tourists in 2011

KIEV — Want a better understanding of the world's worst nuclear disaster? Come tour the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Beginning next year, Ukraine plans to open up the sealed zone around the Chernobyl reactor to visitors who wish to learn more about the tragedy that occurred nearly a quarter of a century ago, the Emergency Situations Ministry said Monday.

Well.. I guess with so much snow and cold weather, one may want to take a tram and tour ride with the Simpsons through a 'warmer' locale with built in heating and natural hot baths.. I am sure the whole family will enjoy this spot in the Sun.. Free hot dogs and coffee , come on down!

Like they say, 'Emergency Situations Ministry spokeswoman Yulia Yershova said experts are developing travel routes that will be both medically safe and informative for Ukrainians as well as foreign visitors. '

I am booking my ticket today!

I am very into Urban Exploration- so this is a dream come true for me!!! I hope they don't clean all the debris and natural decay- that's the fascination of it all!

Medically Safe travel routes - that's no fun at all!

I want to experience it as nature intended in a full body gas tight radiation suit.

. . . and I would go there but unfortunately I have to fly which means TSA pat down.

The red forest is still in an alarming deadly radioactive state. Won't see me travelling there.

Great!

I've always been fascinated by the place. esp when the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R shadow of Chernobyl came out for the PC.

Do a search on Flickr for Prypyat for some good imagery of the place,

also Google earth has been updated with 360 pics in Prypyat and at the power plant. Search Prypyat in Google earth,

that's the nearby town with the Ferris wheel and all that..the Power plant is half mile just a little south east from it.

I would genuinely love to go exploring there, it's a beautiful place with a bizarre creepy atmosphere, more or less post-apocalyptic

But sadly I wouldnt risk it still

There's also an extremely significant amount of paranormal activity there. It is an abandoned city, after all, and the post-conscience that still exists there of the people of Chernobyl should be studied with easier access by international teams.

Maybe it's how they plan to pay for the repairs of the deteriorating sarcophagus. It was built with a life expectancy of 30 years in 1987 but was already showing signs of early degradation in 1999.
