Underwater tourist routes will connect Bulgaria and Romania
A joint project between Romanian and Bulgarian scientists will develop underwater tourist routes, connecting cape Kaliakra and Constanta.
A joint project between Romanian and Bulgarian scientists, financed with a total of EUR 1.5 mil. under the European Regional Development Fund, will develop underwater tourist routes, connecting cape Kaliakra and Constanta, BTA reported.
On the project “Heras” are working divers and researchers from Bulgaria and Romania. They are to search the seabed for shipwrecks and ancient ports. According to Prof Atanas Palazov, head of the Institute of Oceanology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, there are sunken ships, ports and buildings dated IV – V century B.C. on the seabed between Kaliakra and Constanta, which will attract the interest of tourists from all over the world.
The potential sites have already been marked. After they are examined by undersea archeologists, a book with the most interesting routes on the seabed will be published.
The project will last until February 2015. Within the project will be trained diving instructors, who will work as undersea tourist guides.
We will greatly appreciate this. It will help us improve the content of this website, so other people know what they can expect.
