1914 power plant is an abandoned behemoth

A Rare Glimpse Inside a Magnificent, Abandoned Shrine to Electricity

When Kelenföld Power Plant [Hungary] started generating electricity in 1914, it was one of the most advanced plants of its day—though it was modernized and expanded several times since then to serve the changing energy demands of the surrounding districts.

The outdated section of the power plant, which is showcased below, isn’t completely abandoned since it’s in private ownership these days. But the two main attractions—the legendary control room and the old transformer house—are closed to the public, despite the fact that both are considered masterpieces of early 20th century industrial design. You can only visit them during one of the rare guided tours organized by enthusiastic non-governmental organizations, only a few times a year.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
