The submerged church of Ayios Nikolas in Kouris dam

Edited by

The abandoned church is only visible when the water levels of Kouris Dam fall. When the Dam is full the church is submerged under the water creating an amazing phenomenon. The church was a part of the old Alassa village. Another church in the name of Saint Nikolas was built when the new village was constructed in 1980s just opposite the Kouris Dam.
