Around 45 divers turned up on Saturday for the annual decorating of the Zenobia shipwreck off Larnaca. The ornaments were removed after the event to preserve the authenticity of the wreck, one of the most popular dives in the world.
The ferry, owned now by A.A.K. Larnaca Napa Sea Cruises, sank to 45 metres off the coast of Larnaca just two nautical miles offshore on May 7, 1980 during a voyage from Sweden.
It was carrying cargo, including cars, trucks, air conditioning systems, toys, food and a million eggs, which were later found untouched at the bottom of the sea.
Another wreck, the Elpida, was also decorated for the first time this year.
