Why is the church in Lake Reschen?

In 1950, a reservoir was built against the will of the population and the village of Graun was flooded. Hundreds of families from the surrounding area were forced to abandon their homes. Only the church tower of Alt-Graun is a reminder of a village that disappeared in the floods.
