The chapel was established in 2013. It was crafted by the sculptor Nikola Dikov.

It consisit of massive stone altar with cross and a candle holder, icon of the Saint and two plates with religious text.

The chapel is a popular diving site for Bulgarians and international divers.

Below is a short video showing some of the St. Nikolas Underwater chapel pieces.

Underwater Seal cave

Very atractive for diving! The depth at the cave entrance is 3.2m.. the cave lenght is 12m. The cave ends with a water eye thats 2m. wide and has acess to land.

Submarine art gallery "The home of the Mermaid".

There are exhibited works of art resistant to sea currents. The work named "Saint Nicholas Rescues the Sailor" made by Bulgarian sculptor Nikola Dikov is one of the exponents.

Sculpture of a Mermaid was placed on the seabed at a depth of 4.5m in 2017. Author of the sculpture is Nikola Dikov.

The rocks were beautiful on the surface.

As we were on the rocks, it started to rain and we had to leave. We headed back to Ropotamo bridge. On the way, we found a shelter and hide until the rain stopped.
