Soon another underwater park is going to opened. The purpose of establishing a second underwater park in the world is to attract divers to visit city  Izmir (Turkey).To protect places of ancient shipwrecks and other cultural resources from flooded looting, Turkey strictly regulated dive sites with wrecks. Turkish laws prohibit the lovers to explore the place of actual shipwrecks in coastal waters of Turkey.  But tourists can have an interesting dive as alternative. It was decided to recreate the exact copy of a merchant ship which sank in about 600 BC. All constructions  are  already  finished and the ship has been flooded about 150 meters from shore at a depth of 15 meters. Bit strange but still cool :-)
