25th Anniversary Of Chernobyl Nuclear Accident – Part 1

These are the photos of the ghost city of Prypiat.

The city was abandoned since 25 years ago because of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986.

The city used to be very nice and beautiful but now it looks so sad, ugly and scary.

I think that we should stop building new nuclear power plant because it can be very, very dangerous.

Nuclear power plant can cause dangerous nuclear radiation if a disaster happen and a big area has to be abandoned for a long, long time.
