The Ghost Town of Pripyat
Pripyat was left abandoned. It became an enormous ghost city. For a while it sat in stoic silence and then it began to decay. Roofs gave way and water leaked in. Grass grew between the cracks of the sidewalks and weeds took a stranglehold on the once beautiful city. The giant Ferris wheel that once entertained laughing children rusted and turned into a skeletal reminder of everything that had died in the city. Ghost stories came with the dust and hid in the shadows of the empty buildings. Stories of ghost children seeped out like the radiation. Pripyat has become a popular location for tourists and explorers. Those with a fascination for the forgotten can get passes and travel to the ghost town with guides. Radiation levels have been reduced to acceptable levels and for short periods of time Pripyat is harmless in small doses. Destination Truth even visited Pripyat in search of the ghosts that wander its darkened shell. What they managed to capture on film was chilling at times. Pripyat is one of the most haunting ghost towns in the world.
