Baltic History Beneath Surface: Underwater Heritage Trails in Situ and Online
2017 – 2019
Project Baltacar was a cooperation initiative between Sweden, Finland and Estonia to promote wreck diving in the Baltic Sea. Project presented a selection of the best diving destination wrecks in the three countries. The underwater landscape of the Baltic Sea is a unique ecological and cultural-historical environment resulting from the combination of a long seafaring history and good preservation conditions. The remains of shipwrecks in Estonian, Finnish and Swedish waters are well preserved and give us an extraordinary opportunity to take a glimpse into the everyday life that froze hundreds of years ago. In this aspect, the Baltic Sea is a giant underwater museum waiting to be visited.
