In the Energetik cultural palace the concerts, parties and sport events took place. In 1970, in the young developing city of Pripyat, the Palace of Culture was built with white marble decoration, with a cinema for 800 people and a spacious hall. Also the gym, the hotel, the restaurant and even the shop and pharmacy were located in this building. Here were a lot of theatre performances and the radiostation, placed here, had the most modern equipment. Now Energetik is like as post-apocalyptic desert as the other Pripyat buildings. In October 2016 Moscow stalkers lit the Energetik signboard using diodes connected to the battery. See last picture.
