In the little municipality of Rummu, situated a bit 45 km western from the Estonian metropolis of Tallinn, rests the eponymous quarry body of water. When you first look at it, there is absolutely nothing distinctive on this lake. Indeed, it is attractive with its magnificent waters and lovely environment, but why is it distinct to a great many other comparable lakes on the planet? Definitely, there is a structure right in the core of it which much lower portion is submerged. In fact, it is this lower portion that conceals a submerged prison known as Murru, the Submerged Soviet Prison.
These days, this submerged prison is a really sought after touristic region, attracting swimmers and scuba divers from across the world. Although it has an extremely distinct creepy essence, this place is well liked with the residents too who refer to it as “the blue lagoon”. Many of them come here in the course of the summer for a swimming, and they jump almost year long. In winter time, when the body of water is protected in ice, the distinctness is outstanding and can be around 40 metres – a diver’s haven. Even though this is an amazing place, you ought to remember that this is not an official and secured swimming and diving destination.
