Ursus is one of the first casualties of the second world war in the Adriatic. It's well preserved interior and armaments offer a interesting glimpse to all those able to dive in the tough conditions surrounding it. 

Notable: The ship was bombarded by the British submarine Rorqual, impact sites can be easily seen on the wreck. A lucky shot to the ammo magazine sent the boat fast to the bottom. Diving conditions can be very challenging and the site is suitable only to experienced divers capable of diving in high currents and open ocean.
