Instagram influencers are flocking to the site of the disaster to, ya know, “do it for the gram.”

Because of the HBO miniseries, Chernobyl, the nuclear site has seen a boost in tourism.

Seriously, the despite still having higher than normal radiation numbers the site of the 1986 Ukraine disaster has seen an influx of visitors wanting to take a day trip to visit the site.

When you get there you are advised to not touch anything, long sleeves are preferred, and you should not take home souvenirs, but despite the safety precautions, Chernobyl is safer than you think.

There are one-day and multi-day trips available and to give you a hint of pricing, the one day trip will cost you between $90 and $100.
