Chernobyl Writer Urges Tourists To Show Respect When Visiting Exclusion Zone

The writer and producer of hit HBO series Chernobyl has urged tourists to 'comport' themselves when visiting the exclusion zone and the town of Pripyat, reminding them that 'a terrible tragedy occurred there'.

 

The area has seen a rise in tourism since the five-part series aired, with Sergiy Ivanchuk, director of SoloEast tours, telling Reuters the company has seen a 30 percent increase in tourists visiting the area in May 2019, compared with the same month last year.

 

He said bookings for June, July and August have also risen by approximately 40 percent since HBO aired the show.

 

A quick flick through Instagram will show that there are more than 275,000 photos tagged with the hashtag #Chernobyl - which has become something of a hotspot for social media users and influencers to pose for daring pictures.

This is an interesting video about Chernobyl.

I set it to start with the flight of Mr. Steele - one of the most talented drone pilots in this world.

If you like to watch it from the start. Enjoy!
