Leisure center established in former nuclear breeder facility SNR-300, whose construction started in 1972 but never started electricity production and was finally purchased by Dutch investor Hennie van der Most in 1995.

In the 1980´s fast nuclear breeder plants became unpopular and were banned from political agendas around the globe, mainly because of the Chernobyl accident. Today the debate regarding reuse of nuclear fuel is on the agenda again, thanks to global warming. map
