The control room of Chernobyl ‘s infamous Reactor Four is set to open to tourists. The reactor caused one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters when it exploded in 1986, with thousands of people having to be evacuated from their homes, as well as a number of fatalities and injuries. Chernobyl and its surrounding areas, dubbed the ‘Exclusion Zone’ only re-opened to tourists in 2011, with plenty of strict rules and regulations around visiting. Until now, tourists could only view the exterior of the site, but now the Chernobyl Power Plant’s control room for Reactor Four is being opened as a new tourism spot.
