The famous Amusement Park of Pripriyat

Our next stop on our little tour was through the next layer of security, and the smaller, tighter exlusion zone. This is where the company town, Pripriyat was located, and people had to leave so soon, and everyone was evacuated in the space of three or so hours. We walked all around the town, to the leftover supermarket, and the meeting hall, and a couple other buildings,
but the coolest place was the amusement park. It was due to open, but they ended up opening it just one day early, after the accident at the power plant, to distract everyone. So it wasn't really used. But it is proably the most famous part of Pripriyat. I was so excited to see the dodgers! They were so evergrown and great!
