PRIMOŠTEN, 29 January 2019 – A panoramic underwater tunnel is planned to be built in Primošten on the Croatian coast. 

The 1.5 million euro underwater tunnel will be built in Porat bay, Primošten mayor Stipe Petrina told Šibenik.in

“The panoramic pedestrian underwater tunnel will have transparent surrounds and will be 60 meters long and 6 meters wide. It will be located at the deepest part of the sea floor in Porat bay, 18 meters below the sea surface,” he said.  

The plexiglass underwater tunnel will stretch from the new riva across the entire bay of Porat. There are plans for catering facilities and gallery spaces in the tunnel. 

The Primošten Municipal Council has approved the budget cost of close to 50,000 euros for the project documentation.

The tunnel will be the second major investment in tourist attractions in the coastal town which is located between the cities of Šibenik and Trogir. 

In 2017, a 17-metre tall statue of Our Lady of Loreto was unveiled on Mount Gaj in Primošten. The monument was erected to attract religious pilgrims and religious tour groups from all over the world.
