The Caspian Sea disappears, revealing graves of sunken ships

Kazakh media sites have confirmed that several areas in the Caspian Sea have become water-reduced to the point where a cemetery for sunken ships has appeared, and that there are also more dangerous areas, such as areas 200 and 214.
The Kazakh website Aktau reported that the area where the largest cemetery of sunken ships was found in the Caspian Sea was previously used as a training field, and the sunken ships served as training targets there, and now these areas have become dangerous to navigation, and all ships are avoiding them.


The site confirmed the existence of a cemetery of sunken ships on the coast of Topkaragan Bay as well. Ships began accumulating there more than 30 years ago, but today they do not pose a threat to navigation, and they cannot be destroyed, because they belong to private property.

Some scientists describe the situation with the decline of the Caspian Sea as catastrophic, as the water level has dropped so much that navigation in the Russian port of Makhachkala is increasingly halted after the storm. These days, ships remain anchored near Makhachkala, because they cannot enter the port due to the drying up of the canals.

It is noteworthy that divers had previously discovered ships dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century and the late nineteenth century at the bottom of Topkaragan Bay.

It is worth noting that in 2022, a man from the Russian Republic of Dagestan found 5 old naval cannons and an anchor dating back to the era of Tsar Peter I (1682 - 1725) near the shore of the Caspian Sea and the city of Makhachkala. They were delivered to the local national “Ali Bey Tahu Godi” Museum in Makhachkala. Local archaeologists believe the artifacts are estimated to be more than 300 years old.
