Can atomic object considered perfectly safe? Indeed, in addition to the human factor, as we saw after the accident in Fukushima, there is also the unpredictability of nature. And yet there is one atomic object in the world that poses absolutely no threat. Because he's huge an amusement park at an unfinished nuclear power plant in the town Kalkar, Germany.
Despite the enormous benefits of nuclear power, Germany's nuclear program began to phase out gradually as early as the 1980s. A striking episode of this process is the fate of the nuclear power plant in the city of Kalkar, almost on the border of Germany and France. They began to build it back in 1972, and immediately ran into fierce resistance, rallies and demonstrations of local residents. Nevertheless, the work continued. The negligent workers of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant "rescued" the inhabitants of Kalkar, unwillingly themselves: after 1986, there was no talk of building such a dangerous nuclear facility, as it turned out.
The power plant, which was already approaching full readiness, was mothballed in 1991. We have nuclear facility SNR-300 would have remained standing, overgrown with picturesque post-apocalyptic bushes and turning into beautiful ruins. In Germany, it was instantly sold to a Dutch investor (understandably, cheap compared to the cost of construction - 4 billion euros), and he decided to turn the station into … Luna Park.
Inside a huge amusement park Wunderland kalkar there are 40 different attractions: a huge roller coaster, a Ferris wheel, wonderful merry-go-rounds and cars … A real hit is an attraction inside a colossal pipe in the familiar truncated cone shape typical for nuclear power plants. As you can see in the photo, the pipe is beautifully painted on the outside; and inside there is a merry-go-round, which, spinning up, goes higher and higher for half a day. As it rises, the pipe narrows in order to stun the viewer at the very top with the suddenly opened huge horizon.
The Kalkara Nuclear Luna Park receives 600,000 visitors annually and employs 550 people. Atomic objectturned into amusement park - this, of course, is not an argument against nuclear energy, but a vivid proof: a person is perfectly able to turn sour lemons that fate gives him into a sweet and tasty lemonade.
What is happening in the Chernobyl exclusion zone today and other little-known facts about the tragedy at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant
Chernobyl was the largest nuclear disaster in human history. On the morning of April 26, 1986, one of the station's reactors exploded, causing a massive fire and a radioactive cloud. It spread not only over the territory of northern Ukraine and the surrounding Soviet republics, but also over all of Sweden. Chernobyl is now a tourist attraction for all kinds of adventurers looking to explore the Exclusion Zone. Years later, there are still white spots in all this

The Chernobyl tragedy is the hardest test that befell our country.

How many people, so many opinions. How many people, so many hobbies. Someone glues plastic airplanes, someone jumps with a parachute, someone sits for days and watches birds, and the Englishman Michael Kinna is fond of nuclear power plants. Rather, photographing them
The world tirelessly criticizes China for being the world's largest polluter of the environment. And, nevertheless, this state has a quite noticeable program for the closure of coal-fired power plants and their modernization into objects for various purposes. For example, the Museum of Contemporary Art, as happened in Shanghai
