Chernobyl Exclusion Zone: Pripyat – Amusement Park
The most haunting of locations we came across during our visit was the Amusement Park. It was un-staged, sun bleached, and overgrown but there was no denying what it had once been. The day after the disaster they had opened the Amusement Park to keep residents of Pripyat distracted from the ongoing battle at Reactor 4. The bright colors, though faded, remained cheerful against the sunny blue sky. For a moment it was almost easy to forget exactly why the Amusement Park was abandoned – but only for a moment.
