Amazing site near Tallinn. This used to be mining site for white marble and the work was mainly done by prisoners.
When the mine was closed they shut down the pumps that kept the quarry empty and it was filled with crystal clear water.
The old prison building has been partly under water since then.
Nice beach is surrounded by mountains made from the "ashes" of the mine. Mountains are 70 meters high.
There's a nice video in YouTube that tells everything!
