What Could Possibly Go Wrong Here?

Seuthopolis is the most famous underwater archaeological site in Bulgaria – it is the only completely studied Thracian city in Bulgaria. The city is not only unique as an archeological and historical site, but it’s also a “treasure-house” containing vast knowledge for the everyday life of the Thracians. The city was completely uncovered and studied between 1948 and 1954, during the construction of “Koprinka dam”, near Kazanlak. The research team was led by prof. Dimitar Dimitrov, thoroughly studied and photographed the site, before it was covered by the waters of the Koprinka dam.

Kind of looks like a giant drain plug in the middle of the lake.
