When the Kelenföld Power Plant started generating electricity in 1914, it was one of the most technologically advanced plants of its day. In the 1930s this very power plant supplied the whole capital with electricity. The main attraction of this derelict power plant is the stunning Art Deco control room with its oval, decorative glass ceiling, which is a widely acclaimed monument to industrial art. This duality between the ornate style of the turn of the century and functional, mechanical modernity creates an atmosphere like no other. It has many architectural features like a semi-spiral staircase with natural lighting. The power plant has been closed down since 2005, but this strange, creepy, sci-fi movie-like control room with its buttons, and endless switches and displays is open for shootings.
