Geocache Description:

Deutsche Beschreibung:
Alt-Graun war ein kleines Dorf am Rande des Reschensee. 1950 wurde der Reschensee - trotz massiver Proteste durch die Bevölkerung - mit dem Ziel der Energieerzeugung - aufgestaut und das Dorf geflutet. Zuvor mussten ca. 100 Familien umgesiedelt werden. Das Dorf Alt-Graun wurde bis auf die Grundmauern abgetragen. Lediglich der aus dem 14. Jahrhundert stammende Kirchturm der Pfarrkirche St. Katharina blieb erhalten, da er bereits unter Denkmalschutz stand. Während der restliche Ortskern von dem bis zu 28 m tiefen See umschlossen ist, ragt Kirchturm von Alt-Graun aus dem Wasser und bietet sowohl im Sommer als auch im Winter ein skurriles Bild.

Eure Aufgabe: Lasst das Atlantis der Berge wieder auferstehen! Seid kreativ und macht ein Foto in dem zu sehen ist, was sich unter der Wasseroberfläche befindet - natürlich zusammen mit dem Kirchturm. Fotografiert euch (oder alternativ eure GPS-Gerät) mit dem Kirchturm von Alt-Graun, macht das Unsichtbare wieder Sichtbar und hängt dieses Bild eurem Log an.

Viel Spaß!

Englisch description:
Alt-Graun has been a small town until 1950 near the Lake Reschen. in 1950 the town has been flood for a artifical reservoir that was build in the same year to run a hydroelectric power station. Roundabout 100 families had to be relocated. Alt-Graun has been destructed with all its houses in these days but the steeple of the church of St. Catherine (build in the 14th century) has remained because of the protection of historical monuments and has now become the most famous landmark. While the remaining village is enclosed by the lake, the steeple is sticking out of the water during summer days as well as winter days.

Your task: Resurrect Atlantis of the mountains! Show your creativity and show us what is hidden beneath the surface of the water. Take a picture of you (or your gps-device) & the steeple of Alt-Graun in the background, make the invisible visible and attach this picture to your log.

Have fun!

Descrizione italiana:
Curon è stata una piccola città situata vicino al Lago di Resia. Nel 1950 la zona occupata dalla città fu inondata per la realizzazione di un lago artificiale che fu costruito nello stesso anno per gestire una centrale idroelettrica. All'incirca 100 famiglie furono trasferite nel nuovo abitato più a monte, mentre Curon venne distrutto. Soltanto il campanile della vecchia chiesa continua ad emergere dalle acque, tanto da essere divenuto una delle principali attrazioni del di Santa Caterina (costruita nel 14 ° secolo) rimase visibile ed è diventato il punto di riferimento più famoso del paese. Mentre il restante villaggio è sommerso dal lago, il campanile spunta fuori dall'acqua durante le giornate estive e invernali.

Il tuo compito: fai risorgere Atlantide delle montagne! Mostra la tua creatività e mostraci cosa c'è nascosto sotto la superficie dell'acqua. Scatta una foto di te (o del tuo dispositivo gps) e il campanile di Curon in background, rendi visibile l'invisibile e allega questa immagine al tuo log.
