Wrecks in Sweden

Each image to the left represents a larger image collection of a wreck (Name found below each image). To zoom in on the collection of a wreck, just click the representing image.

The waters around Sweden, known as the Baltic Sea and Kattegat, is a very interesting area for the wreckdiver. Several ships has been lost here through time. Mostly because of war and catastrophic insidents like collisions, etc.

Among the most remarkable wrecksites of the Baltic Sea (If not in the whole World!), is the lefts of the historic Submarine Massacre in 1915, were the english Submarine, E-19 sank four german ships in just one day. Not by torpedoes, but mainly by opening the valves at the bottom of the ship, after the crew was told to leave in the rescueboats. Today that means very intact and interesting wrecks, found in a right upstanding position from the seabed, about 40 meter below the surface.
