Chernobyl – tourism in a radioactive land

Guardian 28th Nov 2018 , Grab your Geiger counter: a trip to Chernobyl’s first rave. The nuclear
disaster site is being marketed as a tourist destination with novelty gas
masks, radioactive ice cream and – now – a multimedia art show with the
military. It is a two-hour drive from the centre of Kiev, following the
banks of the Dnieper river into the woods. It is minus six degrees outside.
Wild dogs scavenge at the side of the road. Our bus comes to a stop and
military men in uniform tell us to disembark and ready our passports.
We’re at the main check point of the Chernobyl exclusion zone. From here,
signs warn us, everything is contaminated.
