One of the largest rivers that rest at the bottom of the Adriatic Sea. This truly gigantic 120-meter vessel sank to the bottom during the Second World War. The river is exclusively for experienced divers and is located at a depth of 49 meters.
«In life» being a minesweeper, the ship belonged to the Royal Navy. He went to the bottom in 1945, having run into a mine. Coriolanus lies at a depth of thirty meters and for many years of its forced dormancy has already significantly overgrown with sponges, as well as scraps of nets of fishing vessels. It is they who interfere with a full inspection of the insides of the ship. But the nets, nevertheless, are not an obstacle for the numerous marine inhabitants who have chosen the ship as their home. Diving is allowed only for experienced divers.

Having safely survived that war, the ship was captured by the German army in 1943 and was safely sunk in 1944. The ship's hull is split in two. Its bow is of particular interest, as the bow cannon and large-caliber anti-aircraft machine guns have been preserved here..
The river is a special ship - an excavator. Draga sank back in the 60s of the last century, due to overload. The vessel lies at a depth of 37 meters and its insides are completely populated.
