You can learn more about Obninsk here!

Obninsk is a city in Kaluga Oblast, Russia, located 100 kilometers from Moscow. Obninsk is one of the major Russian science cities. In 2000, it was awarded the status of the First Science City of Russia. The first nuclear power plant in the world for the large-scale production of electricity opened here in 1954, and it also doubled as a training base for the crew of the Soviet Union's first nuclear submarine.

Now the city is home to twelve scientific research institutes. Their main activities are nuclear power engineering, radiation technology, medical radiology, and meteorology. Obninsk is famous for its meteorological tower which was built to study spreading of radiation from the nuclear station. The Geophysical Survey of RAS (GS RAS), is also situated here.
