Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get only by boat. Average depth is 23 m. There is a wreck of the Italian merchant ship, which sank on February 15, 1943 as a result of hitting a mine. The ship was built in 1899 and had a length of 62 m. Cracks on the bow enable to swim and dive under the ship. The bow of this ship is located at a depth of 10 m, but the rest part is much deeper, and therefore this wreck is intended for highly advanced divers. The steam engine of ship lies on 45 m. Largely wreck is covered by multicolored sponges and clubmosses. The wreck constitutes sheltering for many species of sea animals e.g. lobsters and scorpionfish.
