Albanien

Croatia,Adriatic Sea

The steam ship Albanien and her sister ship Adelsberg was laid down at the San Rocco shipyard in Trieste in 1910 under the Austrian Hungarian Empire, for Lloyd's Austriaco. Her history is rather vague, but the few historical sources available state she was used in "local transport" during the early years of First World War. She was hit and sunk by two torpedoes from the Italian submarine Atrapo under command of Lieutenant Maragini 4. June 1916 between the islands of Rab and Pag. The wreck rest today standing on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 65 to 72 meter.
