Nikolskaya bell tower at Kalyazin | Колокольня Никольского собора в Калязине


Check out this drone video of a fascinating spot in western Russia, compliments of contributor  It's a partially submerged bell tower near the town of Kalyazin in the Tver Oblast (province), part of the Central Russia Federal District.  The tower was built in the late 18th century as part of the Monastery of St. Nicholas.  In the 1930's, the damming of the Volga River near here created the Uglich Reservoir; the monastery itself was relocated but the tower remains, partially submerged.
