More than 100 meters off the coast at Cape Tarhankut, the westernmost part of Crimea. At a depth of 10 to 12 meters is a distinctive Underwater Museum of sculptures. The unique Underwater Museum of Cape Tarkhankut has more than 50 sculptures and busts of former Soviet leaders including Lenin, Stalin, and Marx, as well as beautiful replicas of some of the world’s iconic attractions such as the Eiffel Tower of Paris and London’s Tower Bridge.
The Underwater Museum of Cape Tarkhankut is also known as “Alley of Leaders”, was created in 1992 by scuba diver Vladimir Broumenskyy, a native of Donetsk. Therefore, the Soviet Union had just shrunken and there was a surplus of broken statues and busts of communist leaders that the eclectic crowds had pulled down from their pedestals. Moreover, some of those went to Moscow where it became “Park of the Fallen Heroes”.
Also, Vladimir Broumenskyy gets together a few and took them with him to Cape Tarhankut where he sunk them into the sea. Hence, the underwater museum has been growing ever since with new exhibits and being situated at an already trendy scuba diving site, the exclusive museum has never complained about the lack of visitors.
