The biggest hallmark can be found at the core of the plant; the control room. With its enormous art deco styled glass ceiling, it's a remarkable piece of architecture.

Up until the mid-2000s, the power plant provided electricity for the region. After it was shut down and protected by the country's law. Preventing it from being demolished.
