Normally, when you planned your vacation, you would look for the best vacation spot with the best accommodations, joyous entertainment and food. Also, safety would be top of the list. However, there was another type of tourism that was the opposite of these attributes. This was known as dark tourism.

Dark tourism (also Thana tourism, black tourism, morbid tourism or grief tourism) has been defined as tourism involving travel to places historically associated with death and tragedy. More recently, it was suggested that the concept should also include reasons tourists visit that site, since the site’s attributes alone may not make a visitor a “dark tourist”. The main attraction to dark locations is their historical value rather than their associations with death and suffering.Wikipedia


In this Netflix series, the host took us to different historical places that had associations with death and tragedies. The place that really intrigued me was the site of Chernobyl. The explosion at Chernobyl happened when I was a very little girl and was constantly mentioned in my science textbooks about radiation.

There was so much history behind each episode and it wasn’t about having fun. It was about learning the story behind each tragedy. If weren’t careful, history could repeat itself.

It is very important the visitors act respectively at the locations.
