Besides cultural and historical attractions, Ukraine also has a few underwater museums, which are especially interesting for divers. The most remarkable one is probably
the underwater museum in Tarhankut called the Alley of the Leaders.
The museum was created in 1992 by divers from Donetsk and is located not far from Chucha bay in 100 meters from the coast. The museum is situated at 12-meter depth and is impossible to visit without special equipment. There are two exhibition sections separated with a stone arch. Most of the exhibits in the first section belong to the soviet period. The second section displays busts of artists, writers, sculptors and painters, as well as mini-copies of the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower and London Bridge.
Underwater museums also work in Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk. Soon another museum of this kind is expected to be opened in the waters of Kerch near Cape Takil. Guests will be able to see the antique sunken city of Acra. (c) ua-traveling
