We want to show you a new unusual underwater treasure of Croatia, a first of that kind in the whole world, which was installed in Jelinak Valley near Trogir in Dalmatia region.
Joško Kandija, a diving center owner, and Valentino Valent, the owner of a company specialized in ceramics, joined their talents to create the first underwater Stations of the Cross. These underwater Stations of the Cross represent series of images from Christ’s crucifixion. There are many sculptures representing Stations of the Cross around the world, but what makes this one special is that it is the first one located under the water!
If you want to visit these magnificent sculptures, you will need to dive approximately 4 meters under the surface. Hop in the diving suit, take the necessary diving equipment and you’ll be able to enjoy this outdoor museum compiled of 50 sculptures. All of the 14 stations and 50 sculptures should be installed by the end of September 2017.
The sculptures are 1.8 meters high and weigh approximately 1000 kilograms so they will be able to withstand the sea currents and remain in great condition.
It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not, this is a sight everyone will enjoy and it is definitely worth visiting!
