About The Sinking Church of Bezidu, Transylvania
Those who've seen the Sinking Church say it is one of the saddest picture they've ever seen. The old village doesn't exist anymore, actually you can't even find it on a map but it is close to Bezidu Nou (New Bezidu) village and to the small town of Sangiorgiu de Padure. The village has been inundated one year before the '89 Revolution by the communist authorities. 100 houses are immersed on the bottom of the lakes as well as a church. The only building that remained uncovered is the other church, the Catholic one that was built on a hill; its tower can be still seen popping out of the lake's surface. The people were relocated so that the communist can create Bezid Lake.
