    Chernobyl to Open for Tourism

    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.

    Maybe I can use my rewards points. Do you think there is a Holiday Inn inside the sealed zone?

    Re: Chernobyl to Open for Tourism

    Assuming you won't get radiation poisoning still, why not. If you can tour a concentration camp to understand that tragedy this doesnt seem any more odd to me.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    if radiation wasn't an issue...I'd second this. On the other hand, there's other places with historical importance that are closer.

    I loved my tour of Three Mile Island. I can't imagine what this would be like. Adventureland versus Disneyworld?

    If I took a broom, could the radiation turn me into The Leader?
