Church in Mochovce

Mochovce (Hungarian: Mohi) is a former village in western Slovakia, best known for its nuclear power plant.

It is situated in Nitra Region, ca 8 miles northwest of Levice. The village inhabitants were relocated and the village was destroyed to make place for the power plant. A late baroque church and a cemetery are the only remaining structures. In contrast, the power plant construction has brought an economic and demographic boom to the nearby town of Levice in the 1980s.
