Back to the Past, a tour of the old Austro-Hungarian fortifications
Dolphin watching and scuba-diving/snorkelling
Diving in the depths of the sea is much more interesting when you know that in addition to the fantastic underwater flora and fauna, there are also shipwrecks waiting to be explored. The most famous in this area is undoubtedly the wreck of the Austrian passenger ship Baron Gautsch, which sank in 1914 with family members of Austrian officials aboard. Trying to shorten its journey, the ship crossed a minefield, but it ran into a mine and sank in a few minutes. Those who are not much into diving, but love boat rides, will appreciate the evening search for dolphins organised by The Old Diver diving centre.
