The Haunting of Pripyat: Chernobyl's Ghost Legacy


Pripyat, once a thriving city in Northern Ukraine is now considered a ghost town. On April 27, 1986 when the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred, the town was evacuated. Since then, it has sat as it has for 32 years in a strange kind of stasis that appears to attract ghosts. 




Because of the off-limits and ghost town feel of Pripyat, many have sneaked into the area and come back to report stories of shadow figures, zombies, and flickering beings as if they projected by an old reel to reel movie projector.




Perhaps the real ghosts of Pripyat are the very real mutations caused by the tragic accident. If it can have this effect on us, what effect might it have in the conditions that lay down hauntings? 






The town may be devoid of human residents, but wildlife has taken over. The question now is, so have the ghosts too?
