Description

The sea around Premuda Island is extremely popular with divers. The ‘katedrala’, in the bay of Siroka, is a system of connected caves and has beautiful light rays inside coming through the porous rocks.

Experienced divers can explore the Austro-Hungarian battleship Szent Istvan, which was torpedoed by the Italians MAS.15 on the 10th of June 1918.

La mer, autour de Premuda, est très fréquentée par les plongeurs. La "Cathedral", dans la baie de Siroka, est formée de grottes, reliées entre elles, qui sont traversées, par les rayons du soleil qui passent à travers les rochers poreux.

Les plongeurs expérimentés peuvent explorer le navire austro-hongrois sZant Istvan, qui fut torpillé par les italiens le 10 juin 1918.
