Soviet prison transformed into dive site in Estonia

What used to be a prison and labour camp has become a popular beach in Estonia, with visitors relaxing on the shore of a flooded quarry and exploring submerged structures. Prisoners from the nearby Rummu prison used to work in the marble and limestone mining quarry when it was operational.
