Ukraine: Chernobyl - tourist attraction or memorial site?

"Today technology must be protected from people." (Valery Alekseyevich Legasov)

From Simone's travel diary: "At the beginning of our trip, Mischa already expressed the wish to visit Chernobyl if we were to visit Ukraine. The catastrophe caused by the reactor accident is an important topic for him, as he was 10 years old when the reactor exploded in 1986. For many people, the term Chernobyl is a catastrophe that cannot be fully overcome. The consequences will be felt for a long time and will keep humanity busy for a long time. And yet I felt that something was holding me back, that concerned me with the question: Is it legitimate to define such a place as a tourist attraction?"
