Shcholkine, Ukraine

Today we venture to eastern Europe, to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, and into the city of Shcholkine. The town was constructed in 1978 to house the workers from the Crimean Atomic Energy Station, but construction of the power plant was shut down in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster. Google Maps has some pretty sweet pictures of the abandoned plant. Click the picture for a link to the map.

It’s sort of right in the middle of a wind farm, but I don’t think it has anything to do with power generation. If you have an idea, please comment.
