POTD: "Chernobyl ghost town frozen in time"

I wouldn't say frozen in time because it is slowly succumbing to decay and nature. The subject photo essay are of the city of Pripyat in Ukraine, abandoned after the Chernobyl disaster. A couple photos:

"Multiple boats can still be seen poking out of the water near the abandoned city, with rust and greenery having taken over what remains" 

"One of the few apartment buildings that still remain standing in Pripyat can be seen surrounded on all sides by thick greenery and trees - with shrubbery even having started growing on the roof of the abandoned tower"

Source: "Chernobyl ghost town frozen in time: Eerie photos show how abandoned Pripyat is still deserted following 1986 nuclear power plant disaster"--Daily Mail. A lot more photographs at the link.
