When a Lake Hides a Town in Transylvania

Lake Bezid presents a scene that is alternately bleak and hauntingly beautiful. The scene is surreal with half-sunken buildings looking like tombstones in the middle of the lake. Situated in the Transylvania region of Romania sits Lake Bezid. Adding an atmosphere of mystery, the lake hides the remains of a destroyed village. The whole town was flooded after an artificial dam failed. Some of the ruins lay visible lake-side, while in the lake, part of the church and its tower are still visible. Other buildings are completely underwater and decaying. With its submerged ghost town, Lake Bezid is an other-worldly place.
