Technology Tours


CVR offers the public an opportunity to visit its research facilities, such as nuclear reactors LVR-15 and LR-0 and the experimental loops hall. If requested, a visit to other Rez facilities (accelerators, hot cells, …) is also possible.

Typical visitors come from Czech and foreign schools and universities, although nuclear professionals and enthusiasts’ groups are also frequent. Application guidelines for visitors is accessible on the NRI web pages.

Annually, during early November, the The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic announces an “open doors day” for any interested people to visit most of the facilities in the Rez area. The popularity of this event is growing every year with hundreds of people now visiting the facility.
