On August 11, 1918, the Euterpe was sunk by an Italian submarine with two torpedo hits.
The Euterpe stands at 79m deep. Euterpe was a passenger-cargo steamer carrying Austrian soldiers to the battlefields in Albania and evacuating wounded soldiers during the First World War.
It sunk near the island of Pag, and is one of the greatest maritime tragedies of the Adriatic, even bigger than the well-known loss of Baron Gautsch (where about 280 people died, mostly women and children). 453 souls were lost according to official data, but it is believed that the number of victims was even greater, even more than 600 people.
