We”ve already discussed how local wildlife is slowly returning to Chernobyl in the wake of the world”s worst nuclear disaster, but it”s going to be some time before the area returns to its former glory.

Check out these pictures of the Emerald recreation center located by the cooling pond of the destroyed nuclear power plant. While once a beautiful neighborhood of summer homes complete with a dance hall, a library, and even a movie theater it”s now completely abandoned except for a few critters and the occasional squatter.

The eeriest things about the resort are the cartoonish characters painted on the walls of the homes, still goofing off with no one around to see them.

This is a bottle of Naftizin, once used as nasal drops. No one knows if it was left by someone from the resort, or one of the post-meltdown squatters.

The Chernobyl disaster was classified as a level 7 event, which is the most catastrophic classification on the International Nuclear Event Scale. Although it happened in 1986, the area is still contaminated. Maybe one day Emerald will be the resort it once was, but my guess is that new guests won”t be visiting for quite some time.
