12. You Can Tour Pripyat, But You Have To Follow Many Rules and Guidelines
For years, people weren’t allowed to go in and out of Pripyat. Of course, some people went to live near the area again, and others find ways to sneak into the town to get a peek of what it looked like. It seemed that Pripyat was about to become a ghost town lost in time as trees started spreading everywhere. However, this was around the same time when people decided to turn Pripyat into a tour, but there had to be strict guidelines because the town isn’t safe to live in for another 24,000 years.
Before you go on the Pripyat tour, you will receive a list of rules and guidelines which you must follow. Remember, people created the rules with everyone’s safety in mind. These guidelines include a strict dress code, which means only your face, neck, hands, and wrists can be exposed. You have to cover everything else if you want to take the tour. This rule alone means you have to wear pants and have closed-toed shoes. You also have to wear a hat and a long sleeve shirt.
