Pripyat Amusement Park - Photo by Yves Alarie
The Pripyat Amusement Park is an abandoned amusement park sitting in the heart of the 10km Chernobyl exclusion zone. It was supposed to have its grand opening on 1 May 1986, in time for the May Day celebrations, but these plans were cancelled on 26 April, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away. The park—and its Ferris wheel in particular—have become a symbol of the Chernobyl disaster. (Pripyat, Ukraine)
