The wrecks in these photographs – taken by Russian underwater photographer Viktor Lyagushkin – lie in the Gulf of Finland region of the Baltic. Their discovery is part of an ongoing project, supported by Nord Stream, called the ‘Secrets of Shipwrecks’, which has been underway for the past decade. Nord Stream is laying pipeline under the Baltic Sea and at the same time unearthing a treasure trove of old shipwrecks.
