The Pripyat amusement park: it was to be opened for the first time on May 1, 1986, in time for the May Day celebrations, but these plans were scuttled on April 26, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away. Several sources report that the park was opened for a short time on April 27 before the announcement to evacuate the city was made, although several others report that it never opened. In any case, the park have become a symbol of the Chernobyl disaster.
