Geocache Description:


Welcome to Bözödúfalu/Bezidu Nou to the village under the water. This is a nice however a very sad place...Place of a tragedy of the late XX. century. The onetime village laid south from Erdoszentgyörgy at the Küsmöd creek. Thanks to the megalomania of a mentally affected dictator (Ceausescu) the buiding of a storage-lake has been started in 1988 and the village has been flooded. 150 houses of 900 inhabitants, 12 km road and 247 ha land has been destroyed by the water. The people had to move to different towns in the area: to Erdoszentgyörgy, to Hármasfalu, to Székelykeresztúr and to Bözöd. The overflooded town - today like a "ghost city" - is entirely under water. Only the tower of the Catholic Church emerges out of the water... Ceasescu succeeded: a Hungarian village has been destroyed with the center of the Sabbatarian religion in Transsylvania. This cache shall be in commemoration of the people once lived in Bözödújfalu. Have a nice trip around the lake. Mikulas Hungarian site: http://geocaching.hu/caches.geo?id=1385
