Fancy buying a 1927 underground power plant in Hungary?

Ever fancied a place in the sun? Hungary's explosives manufacturer, Nitrokemia, has put its underground power plant site up for sale, according to The Guardian. Disused for many years, it might make a nice venue for a nightclub.

It sounds very bijou: "Entry into the plant is through an unassuming office block. A spiral staircase winds its way down into a steep concrete tunnel, which ends on an iron gallery perched atop the first of three gigantic halls. At its peak, the power plant, carved 60 meters (197 ft) into the hillside, burned up about 275,000 tonnes of coal a year. By the late 1960s, however, it could not keep up with rising energy demand as the factory began producing various other chemicals."
