Monastery under the lake (Kalyazin/ Russia)

What looks like a strange lighthouse is actually the bell tower of Makaryevsky Monastery, most of which was flooded due to dams on the Volga River in 1939. Later they built a small artificial island around the tower.

In winter the water freezes so visitors can take a stroll over there.
