Lacul Secu

Prior to moving to Romania I did my fare share of foreboding on whether or not I would be bitten by a snake if I went for a swim in a lake.

I know, this is really silly!

I am so glad that I left my fear behind because swimming in fresh water surrounded by mountains is so refreshing, beautiful and peaceful.

There are folk tales which make “Lacul Secu” even more interesting; it is said that this lake covers a drowned village whose villagers were forced from their homes during the Romanian Revolution. After researching, I see that the facts about the stories of this lake are not available online, but I did find images of other drowned villages here in Romanian and across the world. 

I have to say, my newly found discovery of “drowned villages” intrigues me. So, you can be sure, that I will do my best to visit another lake which covers a drowned village in the future. I will of course share the details of my findings when I do.  

I am curious, can you see the back of our heads bobbing in the water? The photo credit belongs to my Father-in-Law who cheered for us while we swam to the opposite side and back. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this post today. I hope to find out more about these lakes and mystical villages so that I can share more details with you as I learn them.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. 

For my regulars, thank you for visiting again. For any new-comers… I look forward to seeing you again soon. Please subscribe so that we can keep in touch.

      Actually… that’s the “spooky” part of the folk tale. People said they know people who died because of it. But… I just enjoy the swim. It was so long ago and I was millions of miles away when it happened so… I really have no background with them. Lol. 🤷‍♀️
