Holiday in the death zone: How nuclear disaster-hit Chernobyl now has TEN THOUSAND tourists a year

  • April 26, 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy - and the site sees more visitors today than ever
  • Several private tour operators lead excursions into the Exclusion Zone, a nearly 50-kilometre contamination radius
  • However, in order to enter, tourists must obtain a pass and go through multiple security check points 
  • Though there are several abandoned villages in the zone, the most popular site to visit is the ghost town of Pripyat
