Chernobyl is located in the country of Ukraine. It is the biggest nuclear disaster ever known to man. The incident was caused by a flawed Soviet reactor design that was wrongly manipulated by plant operators. The disaster released nuclear radiation and as a result killed the workers on site. Within a few weeks, people around the area died because of radiation poisoning. As a result of this many had to be evacuated and resettled. The town remained in isolation until the environment was made free of radiation. In 2011, Chernobyl was officially declared as a tourist attraction.
