Slavutych town in Chernobyl's shadow

An unused ferris wheel in Pripyat, a ghost town left deserted by the nuclear disaster in the Chernobyl power station nearby. 30 years on, the city is still heavily contaminated, unfit for human life.

The Chernobyl nuclear disaster happened on 26 April 1986. The ferris wheel was scheduled to be unveiled a few days after the disaster, but was never used.
