At the bottom of the lake in Turkey found that scientists are still in shock!


At the bottom of Lake Van in Turkey, researchers discovered the ruins of an ancient fortress, built 3000 years ago. At that time in the territory of modern Turkey was located a powerful state of Urartu.

The majestic structure occupies about a square kilometer of the square and now rests at a depth of ten meters. For several centuries the water level in the lake rose 150 meters.

While divers managed to lift to the surface only a small statue of a lion. It is expected that the area will be explored by groups of independent scientists and archaeologists.


The ancient state of Urartu was located in South-West Asia, on the territory of the Armenian highland. In the first millennium BC, Urartu was the beginning of all Asian countries in the region.
