Pripyat

At least I think thats the way its spelled. Its the city that was evacuated when the Chernobyl neclear plant had a meltdown. The areas still off limits although they do allow some people to visit. They even made a movie, but I first learned about it through pictures posted online. An entire city just abandoned in a days time, its like the people just disappeared. But it has a mysterious, sad beauty about it. An entire city, a great achievement for man brought down by mans folly.

Have you been there? I thought that the city had been re-populated, but you are right that it has remained abandoned. I've just read that the city was only built 16 years before the Chernobyl accident.
