This is one of the most amazing abandoned places I have visited. This is the unused part of a thermal power plant in Hungary with highlights like the Art Deco control room with the legendary opal glass ceiling, nice staircases and long corridors. The plans for building a new power plant to supply Budapest with electricity was introduced by the City Council in 1893. They wanted to provide the city with independent power generation instead of two privately owned electricity companies. In 1914 the plant began producing power and which was the most advanced power plant of its day. The fantastic control room and adjacent transformer room was designed by and Hungarian architect Reichl Kalman in 1926 and its listed and protected by law which means they can’t be demolished, but they are not renovated and kept up to shape either. The little house inside the control room is actually a bunker where the workers could hide during bombing raids during the war. The power plant became the largest one in the country and the most modern in Central Europe before it was abandoned in 2006. The whole eerie place is now a shrine to the industrial revolution and a symbolic landmark of early capitalism and closed to the public.
