The Monastery under the Lake

In 1939, the Soviet government began damming the Volga River in Russia. The flooding that resulted left the entire Makaryevsky Monastery underwater except for the belfry. That and the artificial island later built around it are what you see in the above picture. You can view more pictures of this beautiful oddity at the link.
