The Most Unusual Beach In Europe – In A Prison Camp in Rummu, Estonia

This is Rummu, an abandoned Soviet prison and forced labor open mine located in Estonia, closed more than 20 years ago. Underground waters flooded the quarry and the place went from being a horrible punishment facility to becoming one of the most exotic and strange beaches ever seen.

Every summer this complex fills up with locals and tourists, eager to play around the dilapidated jail. It’s also attracting a lot of scuba divers because of such clear waters. So, check it out next time you visit Estonia!
