The Flooded Village Of Bezidu Nou
The number 9 on our list of 10 unique places from Romania is the Flooded Village of Bezidu Nou.
This village, nowadays drowned, was the center of a Transylvanian religious group.
The iconic thing of Bezidu Nou is the Catholic church which remained visible above the waters.
In 1995, a memorial was formed which holds the names of the former residents, along with plaques reading :
” On the floor of the lake rests Bezidu Nou. Its 180 former residents, now scattered in the world, mourn it still today. [ … ]
Now the prayers of Roman Catholics, Unitarians, Greek Catholics, and Sabbatarians have gone silent forever. Let this place be a symbol of religious tolerance. ”
