Once It Was a Prison. Now It's a Beach.

Murru Prison was a Soviet prison and forced labor camp on Lake Rummu in Estonia. The Soviet Union sent its enemies there to toil in the open-air quarry. But it is no longer an icon of tyranny. It's a pleasant beach and swimming hole where people while away their idle time. This footage shot by XL Studios shows happy people at play on the water and the ruins of the prison, which now serve as diving platforms.

The crystal blue waters are also a good place to go scuba diving. Much of the prison is now submerged in the water, giving divers plenty of places to explore
