Zhrebchevo Dam

Потопената църква Жребчево

The submerged church – how the power of faith lives under the waters of Zhrebchevo dam

An old stone church appears as a beautiful apparition in the waters of Zhrebchevo dam and disappears after half a year. Six months a year, the church cannot be reached on foot, but only by water, because it lies under the waters of the dam. The magic has been going on for half a century since in 1962 the church and the houses of the former village of Zapalnya remained under the newly built Zhrebchevo dam.
