Ναυάγιο ... Shipwreck





Κοντά στην πόλη Γύθειο βρίσκεται εδώ και περίπου 15 χρόνια το ναυάγιο ΔΗΜΗΤΡΙΟΣ.
Λένε πως το συγκεκριμένο πλοίο έκανε λαθρεμπόριο τσιγάρων από την Τουρκία προς Ιταλία.
Όταν έπεσε σε καταιγίδα, εγκαταλείφτηκε στην παραλία Σελινίτσα.


Near to Gythio, Mani, in a distance of 5 km on the beach of Selinitsa is found the
shipwreck Dimitrios.
The story says that is was one of the many boats that made smuggling cigarettes from 
Turkey to Italy.
It fell in a storm and was abandoned at the beach of Peloponnese.

  1. When I read a title and not see yet the picture, I thought it must be about Zakhyntos:)
    The wreck looks a bit scary

  3. Bitch, ein tolles Foto. Es wird schon stimmen, dass es ein altes Schmugglerboot war. Trotzdem wäre es schön, wenn es erhalten bliebe.
    Einen schönen Donnerstag wünscht Dir

  6. Η εικόνα έρχεται να απασχολήσει τη σημερινή κατάσταση στην Ελλάδα, να προσέξουμε να μην βράχια.

  13. Ist ja toll dass das Wrack dort steht, wirkt irgendwie umheimlich und erinnert mich irgendwie an solche "Geisterschiff-Filme"

    Dir noch einen schönen Abend und liebe Grüße

  14. Είναι πολύ όμορφο να το βλέπεις
    αλλά η ιστορία του όχι και τόσο!
    Πάντως και η θάλασσα εκεί είναι απίστευτη έτσι?

  17. The risk of smuggling as every boat like this tells a story. I am left wondering how long it has been sat there as it looks like a long time. Great shot considering the difficult clashes of lighting.

  27. liebe Monika, ein schönes Foto, ein einsames altes Schiff… einst war das weite Meer sein zu Hause, die Stürme zerrten es hin und her, nun ist es allein.

  28. Well it sure is a colourful wreck ! Looks like it's been there for a while too.

    Loved your summer fun shots - beautiful beaches and waters ! And your Olympia shots remind me once more of our wonderful trip to Rhodes exactly one year ago - one of our best trips ever !

    Have a great week, Monika. Hugs !
