St. Ivan Rilski Church submerged - Thursday 21st May 2015

These images shot from a drone show the submerged Church of St. Ivan Rilski in Zhrebchevo Dam, near the town of Tvardica in Bulgaria. The Church once belonged to the abandoned village of Zapalnya, which was engulfed by water after the Dam was constructed in 1965 and is now completely submerged. The ruins of the Church are the only remaining evidence of the settlement and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area when it surfaces every spring. For the rest of the year, it becomes an underwater attraction for scuba divers. - Tvardica Bulgaria - Thursday 21st May 2015 (20 images)
