ORP Bryza

Poland,Baltic Sea

ORP Bryza was laid down as a cutter at Stocznia Gdanska in Gdynia, and was launched in 1965 for the Polish Navy. She served in the navy until 2003, when she was stricken from the navy lists and sold to a private company with the aim of sinking her as a future dive site. At least that's what the rumors say. A few years later Bryza was deliberately scuttled at Hel outside the city of Gdynia 16. August 2009. She rest today on a depth of 10 to 22 meter standing on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck.
