Sunken ships that are visible from the surface


Through the bitter-salty water show the deck of ships sunken at shallow depths. Like ghosts from a parallel world, they have plunged into oblivion and are now scaring random witnesses from the depths.

At low tide hours, they approach the surface itself, where the foot of an unwary swimmer can touch the rusty and slimy side of a dead man.

When the tide comes, the sea hides the trophy, carrying it into the depths of the waves, under the weight of the high waters. There, where everything is shrouded in darkness: the wreckage of ships, and the plunging cities, and octopuses, and storms, and boxes of gold ...

Ship's Graveyard in Truda Bay

Destroyers, patrol boats, submarines, amphibious ships - the entire 42 object in a submerged and semi-submerged state. The main attraction of the island of Russian pictures from space.

Most of them are decommissioned Pacific ships. fleet. Many have been waiting for their fate since the mid-1970s, and have already lost all hope of disposal in normal conditions. Nowadays, Labor Bay has become a popular place for surfing due to its magnificent and frightening views of the rusty ridges of ships lying under water.

The cruiser "Murmansk", flown on the cliffs of Hammerfest. The most heroic representative of the entire collection of dead ships

The former flagship of the Northern Fleet, Murmansk KRL, served 36 years, leaving astern over 240 thousands of nautical miles. In 1989, the old cruiser was expelled from the current fleet and sucked; three years later sold for metal.

In December, 1994, while towing to India, the old warrior fell from the towing cables. Death on the stinking beach of Alanga seemed unworthy of the flagship of the Federation Council. Like a samurai who chose seppuku, the cruiser preferred to breastfeed on sharp rocks.

He spent long 15 years off the coast of Norway, turning into a local attraction for those who want to gawk at a Soviet warship. However, the fears of the Norwegian environmentalists took up - in 2010, work began on the cutting of "Murmansk" in an improvised drained "lagoon". By now there are no more traces of him.

      The fact that this is a remake of the release of the late 80s of the 20th century in St. Petersburg is even known by basement cats.
