Nuclear energy in Croatia

Croatia has no nuclear power plants on its territory. Croatia co-owns the Krško Nuclear Power Plant together with Slovenia; the Krško plant was built in the era of Yugoslavia on the territory of present-day Slovenia. In 1978, the Adriatic island of Vir was selected as a location for a future nuclear power plant, but these plans were abandoned.[1] Also, Croatia has been discussing since 2009 the option of building together with Albania a nuclear power plant on the shore of Shkodër Lake, on the border with Albania and Montenegro. However, the Croatian government later denied this initiative.[2]
