The most popular and best known wrecks in probably all of Croatia is the Baron Gautsch. This 89 meter long and 11 meter wide Austrian traveling ship was built at the beginning of the 19th century, sunk not many years later by hitting a mine on August 23rd 1914. It was transporting members of the families of Austrian officers on the line Boka Kotorska - Mali Lošinj -Trieste. Wishing to shorten traveling time, the ship had tried to come through the mine field, which is 9NM away from Rovinj. Supposedly, they had seen a merchant vessel doing the same thing. But, it struck the mine in the middle of its port and sank in a short time. The ship is protected by the Ministry of Culture in Republic of Croatia. Entering the ship is only allowed through the first two boards, because of safety reasons. The Baron Gautsch is sitting in an upright position, very well preserved and it gives unforgettable pleasure to divers all around the world.
