The Baron Gautsh was an Austrian passenger ship built in Trieste in 1913, for the Austrian Lloyds. On Aug. 13th 1914 at 2:50 p.m. it came too near an Austrian minefield off the Croatian coast and, not heeding the warnings issued by the minelayer Basilisk, it hit a mine and sank, causing the death of about 245 people. The wreck was used during the second world war for target practice, so that now it shows considerably more damage than what was originally caused by the explosion.
The wreck lies at a depth of 40 meters, and is frequented by scuba diving tours.
Daniele Pittia, one of the scuba divers recently shot this video, in which a strange, eerie music can be heard.
