Ruble Maps?

I have a real knack for bad titles, but it kinda sorta has a ring to it.

OK, maybe not.

Let’s move on, shall we?

For those of you that feel like taking a walk through Pripyat, you can check out this Russian map version of a Pripyat “Google” street view map.

Take a stroll.  The snow gives it a placid feel.  Look for the famous amusement park that never had a chance to amuse (slated to open May 1, just days before the April 26, 1986 disaster and having opened for a few hours on the 27th before everyone was evacuated).  Blunt Force Clue – it’s right here.  The power plant is over here.

The Polesie State Radiation and Ecological Reserve is to the north of town.  It’s a closed nature reserve covering roughly 507 square miles.

I have a fascination with abandoned buildings and locations.  Pripyat definitely fits that bill.
