The wreck at Diakofti

Zakynthos might have its famous shipwreck ("navayio") but at Diakofti you can see the bow of the sunken Antiguan-flagged freighter, the "Nordland". The ship ran aground on the rocky islet of Fidonissi on 29 August 2000. For more information on the sinking and its aftermath go to www.itopf.com/nordland.PDF.
