History of Premuda Island
Hungary’s only battleship, the Szent Istvan (Saint Stephen) was sunk June 10, 1918, off the coast of Premuda, by torpedoes from an Italian MAS-15. It was one of only three battleships whose sinking was recorded. The last half-hour of the ship’s life was filmed from the Tegetthoff, while attempting to tow the crippled ship to drydock. The film was used to raise money for the Red Cross. Experienced divers may now explore the wreck.
