The Alexander Newsky was a russian fregate, that stranded in a heavy storm, 25th. of September, 1868, of the Jutland Westcoast, from Harboøre. Among the crewmembers was the son of the Russian Zar, as a part of his maritime education. Normally, stranding meant a catastrophic disaster with lots of lost lives and materials, but in this case, it was a rather succesfull rescue of the 400 men onboard the ship.
Only 4 people lost their life, thanks to the poor, but brave rescuers on land. The wreck was so huge and rich on metal, furnitures, etc. that the whole wealth of the community was increased remarkable, several years after the incident.
Today, the wreck is strongly broken down, but because of the great and famous history, it's really worth a visit.
