The scene of the world's worst nuclear disaster has become a popular tourist destination. Thanks to the television mini-series 'Chernobyl', the abandoned city of Pripyat and the area surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant have become a tourism hotspot. The area is one of the most polluted places in the world and can only be visited with a licensed guide. Various tour companies are offering guided trips into the "exclusion zone," which covers an area of more than 4,000 square kilometers around the nuclear power plant. CNN reports that tours are typically one-day group bookings and cost around $99 per person.
