English sailing ship “Agnes Blakie” is the only vessel of this kind in the Crimea, as it has ideally preserved since the Crimean War 1853–1856. It was made of high-quality species of wood — mainly of oak, and it had the top qualification for that time - 9&#1040;1. In the period of military actions this vessel fell foul of another ship and sunk due to severe damage down to the depth of 84 m.
When diving to “Agnes Blakie”, time seems frozen, and when a “phantom ship” comes in sight you can not but hold your admiration for this view. The holds are still full of old-time arms and English military apparel. The look of tall masts evokes sensation that the sails will spread in a moment. A ship bell with inscription “Agnes Blakie” was found on this vessel.
This wreck was entered into the UNESCO catalogue as one of the cultural and historical monuments of the planet. The decision has been made to keep the sailing ship intact in its place as an exhibit of the underwater museum.
