To get to the current nuclear power plant is an unattainable dream for many.
Multi-level security system, radiation and seething crater of a nuclear reactor.
… Welcome!

1. Smolensk NPP. Desnogorsk town.
One of the 10 operating nuclear power plants in Russia.
Nuclear power plant provides 8% of the electricity in the Central region and 80% in the Smolensk region.
And a huge building which scale can not fail to impress.

2. The construction of nuclear power plants was announced in 1973.
Multilevel access control.
At each stage of the passage in the NPP its own kind of protection. And of course, lots of special equipment.

3. Visiting NPP, first of all, it is necessary to undress.

5. Actually, there is no need to take them because the helmet, that is also needed to wear, is complete with noise-attenuating earphones.

6. Yes, the shoes are also individual.

9. That’s it. We’re inside.

11. Block control panel of the NPP.

It controls everything…
