    After 24 years, the park’s attractions are unmoved. The still-standing, yet sad-looking Ferris wheel has become a symbol of the city and The Zone of Alienation – the exclusion zone surrounding the site of the Chernobyl disaster. Players of the popular video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare may recognize its structures. The park, including its Ferris wheel, provided source material for the game.

    Amazing, beautiful and sad, all at the same time. A lone Ferris Wheel at Pripyat Amusement Park in the Ukraine. Once home to workers of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, the park was effectively closed the day it was opened.

  • Kate Masters

    Abandoned amusement park in Pripyat, Ukraine – the very same day it opened, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred.

Though the Katoli World Park was forced to close, the rides – a dragon boat, merry-go-round and the teacups among them – existed for years afterward. So while it was impossible to ride them, it was possible to walk among them; to negotiate flourishing vegetation in search of the remarkable ruins.(Image: Abandoned But Not Forgotten)

Herdman's Mill, part of a model community built in 1835 by the Herdman brothers from Belfast. Urbex, urban exploration, abandoned building, urban decay, creepy, abandoned factory.

Seeing places like this makes me ask many questions: who lived there? What were they like? How did they live? Think? What did they feel? What happened to them? So many unanswered questions...
