But sometimes the danger is so real and tangible that it cannot be ignored. But thousands of people seek these places every year. Perhaps their craving is irrational, tours to the most terrible places in the world, filled with horror, are in constant demand.
What attracts tourists to Ukrainian Chernobyl? The terrible dead city of Pripyat is a mute reproach and a reminder of how shaky everything that each of us lives with every day is, how reverently and carefully we need to treat everything around us.
