Croatia: Souvenir Sheet on Steamboat

The Alpe-Adria souvenir sheet, issued on 14th April 2011, is dedicated to the Alpe-Adria\"\" Phila 2011 philatelic exhibition. The souvenir sheet,  is on the cargo steamboat \”Vis\” which sank near the entrance to the Bay of Plomin in 1946 when it ran into a naval mine left over from WW2. The motif of the stamp is the cargo ship \”Elhawi Star\” which capsized shortly after departing from the Rijeka harbor in 1982. Today, these two ships are among popular diving destinations in Croatia and many diving clubs organize tourist trips to explore such sites.
