New Tourist Attraction for Croatia’s Northern Adriatic Aims to Extend Season

WikiScuttling, or the act of deliberately sinking a ship by allowing water to flow into the hull, may soon be a new tourist attraction on Croatia’s northern Adriatic coast…

The Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, which includes popular spots such as Rijeka, Crikvenica, Opatija and the islands of Krk, Cres, Lošinj and Rab, are interested in introducing Scuttling as a new tourist attraction in an attempt to prolong the tourist season in the area.

The county says that the deliberately sunk vessels will be outside navigation routes and they must be environmentally harmless and safe for divers. Croatian counties are currently trying to find solutions to the challenge of prolonging the tourist season on the Adriatic coast, a season which currently only runs from June to Spetember, and which has been one of the Croatian Tourist Board’s main focuses.
