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.
