Tourists can be called rather strange people, for they attend not only important and beautiful places, but also those that are otherwise connected with tragedies.
Many this will seem not particularly pleasant and important, but for someone it is the same attractions as everyone else, therefore the people are interested in touching them.
Considering how much human story is rich in similar events, it is not surprising that there are quite a few respective travel places.

This city became known for the whole world as a result of the Chernobyl accident. The Chernobyl zone still remains closed for free visits, because the level of radiation here still takes the norm hundreds of times. But this does not prevent the city to be very popular among tourists, which sometimes are not afraid of even possible irradiation, wanting to get into the closed zone. Every year there is a huge amount of excursions, and although the rules of visiting are quite strict, for some it is not a reason to stay without adventure.

Another person heard about this place, especially in different films, although before it was a simple island prison. Its popularity, as you can guess, she received thanks to his prisoners who had too loud glory.

Fields of death

Поля смерти

Such a loud name is quite natural for places where there are at least a few million people who died during various repression and simply from hunger. In places of mass graves, it is easy to see the skulls of the dead, on which traces of their cruel death remained.

At least these places can not be called excellent landmarks, visits them quite a lot of people who do not oppress what happened there earlier. It is worth noting that people are sent there for various reasons, but it does not cancel the gloominess of such tourism.
