Wreck Diving On August 11, 1918, the Euterpe was sunk by an Italian submarine with two torpedo hits.

On 4 June 1916, Albania was sunk by a torpedo from the Italian submarine Atropo. The torpedo hit is located at the rear on the side of the control board.

Today, the Albania stands upright at a depth of 72 m, as if it wanted to sail away.
It is located near the coast, where visibility is better than other wrecks in Kvarneric, mainly because fishing is not allowed in this area and nets do not disturb the sediments.

The Italian divers of the WDS dived to Albania in 1999 and 2000 and found that the wreck was banging its stern against the rocks. It lies on a sandy and muddy bottom and is relatively accessible. The deck is well preserved, the stern is damaged, but the two masts and part of the superstructure as well as the ship’s reflector are still in place.
