There is just something fascinating about a shipwreck. That’s the Soviet cruiser Murmansk. Interestingly, the previous Soviet cruiser named Murmansk was the former USS Milwaukee (CL-5), loaned to the Soviet Navy in 1944.

  1. I think my favorites are The Maheno in Australia and the Eduard Bohlen in Namibia.

    In 1988, my Nautical Archeaology prof invited me to go to a dig he was conducting off the coast of Turkey. I couldn’t afford it, but at least I got to work in the lab, desalinating the artifacts they brought back. That was fun.
