The Reactor Center Podgorica is nicely placed in the environment in the middle of fields and meadows on the northern bank of the Sava river, about 12 km northeast of Ljubljana. It is surrounded by the settlements Šentjakob, Podgorica, Pšata, Bišče and Brinje.

Here, in 1966, a TRIGA reactor was built as the basis around which knowledge of nuclear technology was established.

Knowledge was later used in the construction and operation of the first Slovenian nuclear power plant in Krško, radiation measurements in the environment, safety analyzes and the like.
