Museo Atlantico - the first underwater museum in the world was officially opened to visitors
Do you think that only fish, marine animals and plants can exist under the water? This sculptor proved that it is also a perfect place for an art museum.
Jason deCaires Taylor turned underwater space into a real art museum. He created unique sculptures that were put on the depth of 14 meters and thus formed the first underwater museum. Museo Atlantico - this is the official name that was given to this Wonder of the World.
The museum is located near the coasts of Spain's Canary Islands. It includes about 300 different sculptures. The sculptor spent 2 years to finish the project. The main theme of this unique exhibition is relations between people and the ocean.
Of course, this is a rather difficult task to see the items of this museum. You should be fearless and scuba dive. But unusual sculptures and their blue background can really amaze everyone.
