Didn’t expect to have a chance to check out a sub in this part of the world. It’s an old diesel powered sub from the 50s. Most of the interior has been kept in her original state during the service.

The monument is an old submarine and you can enter it and experience the workings of it. An entrance fee is charged. You can then see the screening of the video in the nearby theatre.
