Austria's Green Lake - Underwater Park

This is awesome!
Austria's Green Lake is one of a kind where it's alpine park turns into an underwater park for half a year after the ice melts due to rising temperature.
Throughout the frozen winter months the area is almost completely dry and is used as a county park. It is a particular favourite site for hikers.

But as soon as the temperatures begin to rise in spring, the ice and snow on the mountaintops begins to melt and runs down into the basin of land below.
Check this pictures out.
