This training ship sank during the second world war close to the harbor of Klaipeda. It is such a beautiful wreck!
The VIIC class submarine U-580 sank 1941 in the Baltic Sea off Memel after a collision with the German target ship ANGELBURG.
The barge was a carrier without propulsion or sails and carried railway material. Looks like it is quite old.

Andrey and I were inspecting and measuring a wooden ship wreck close to Klaipeda in 38m water depth. We were lucky, because we found the bell with the inscription of the ship’s name. So, we could identify the wreck in one single dive.
