"Kids with dreams become adults with vision".
If the cooling pond of a nuclear power station seems an unlikely choice of location to establish a children’s holiday camp, the Emerald abandoned resort in Ukraine is doubly unsettling, due to its location in the decommissioned shadow of Chernobyl. The holiday camp is where the children of Pripyat would spend their summer holidays. The brightly coloured murals, depicting characters from nursery rhymes and children’s stories, have survived the ravages of time surprisingly well. We visited the camp, which boasted around 100 wooden huts set amid acres of peaceful pine forest.
