The "Istra" is a passenger ship that collided in 1898 with the Italian ship Capraia. This configuration also results in the huge entourage, still visible hole or break off the bugs. Some sources refer to this vessel as a cargo ship that in the first World War II, according to some sources even before the 2nd World War is to be dropped.
Hans Schmidt, a Large freighter, was built in 1920 in Rotterdam.The Istra sank on 1/24/1943, near Pula on a mine, the strong secondary explosion, probably loaded the ammunition, this separated the bug from the rest of the hull. This information will appear under the ship construction and the damage as unrealistic.
The Istra today lies at a depth of 33 to a maximum of 42 meters on the sea floor, the bug is all about 20 yards from the ship. The wreck is about 90 meters long and 12 meters wide. Well worth seeing is the imposing four-bladed propeller. Discarded fishing nets which span parts of the ship, offer a great photo backdrop.
In the vicinity of the wreck is also still torpedo ammunition from the 2nd to find World War II, was buried here.
