Don’t forget to bring your swim fins, dive mask, scuba cylinders, and wet suit. No, we’re not going to the beach, we’re going to the park. Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake located in Styria, Austria. Though it’s pretty much your normal, crystal-clear, emerald-green hued lake, it does however, have one noteworthy attraction.
The lake has a fluctuating depth that leaves a park completely submerged in as much as 10 meters deep. That’s the equivalent of a three-story building. This happens around June, when the spring heat has melted the snow off the nearby glacial summits of the surrounding Karst Mountains.
Though not a very friendly place for dog-walking or jogging at this time of year, it is a favourite spot for divers. There are spectacular diving sights in this underwater park, such as a submerged bridge, bench and trees. Marc Henauer, a diving enthusiast and photographer, was able to capture the underwater scenery while he was there.
