The Black Sea is a storehouse of secrets and mysteries. Dozens of sunken ships rest at its bottom, which, to this day, keep tons of gold from the eyes of the inhabitants.

Why did it happen?

Despite its shallow depth, the Black Sea is still quite dangerous during storms. Some of its sections are simply impassable for ships. In high waves, the vessel throws it onto the sandbank, onto underwater boulders, as a result of which they die.

In the Middle Ages, dozens of ports were built on the Black Sea coast, which daily received hundreds of ships with various provisions. Of course, as a result of the raging elements, many ships could not reach their destination, and found their abode at the bottom of the sea.

Today divers study the underwater part of the sea and remain shocked by the number of ships that rest in its depths. Many of the ships were never identified, and underwater explorers were never able to find out with certainty what was transported on them. But this is not in relation to the "Black Prince", his scientists were still able to find. This ship of the British Navy sank in 1854, carrying tons of jewelry in its holds. Gold coins, ingots, items made of gold and precious metals - this is what was kept on board this ship. Of course, other data were indicated in the logbook, it was indicated here that the Black Prince did not transport any valuables. This was done because all data on ships with precious cargoes were transferred to pirates and they mercilessly robbed and destroyed such ships.

But what is so significant about "The Black Prince"? He sank in the coastal waters of Balaklava. This is a city closed from the inhabitants. Since the twenties of the last century, hundreds of treasure hunters have been sent in search of the Black Prince's treasure. But the most important thing is that during the Soviet Union, a whole scientific expedition tried to unravel the mystery of the sunken ghost ship with untold riches on board.

The search for treasures is a specific job, a hobby that is inherent in many citizens, both in Russia and other countries of the world. The treasure search system itself is quite simple - you need to know what and where to look. To begin with, it is worth deciding on the object of the search. So, sunken ships with precious cargo are a tidbit.

In many sea areas, treasure hunters can go diving and quietly raise jewels from the bottom one after another. At the same time, even ancient household items can be of value. The same vases, bowls, other household items. But gold and jewelry is the highest goal for divers.

As for the "Black Prince", historical records were found indicating that there were six million rubles in gold on board. This is a colossal amount that treasure hunters simply could not ignore.

What's the most remarkable thing?

The government of the USSR became interested in the search for the "Black Prince". In the fifties of the last century, Russia needed fresh financial injections, the country was plundered and destroyed by the war, so the government grabbed every opportunity to replenish the treasury. But finding sunken relics is a tricky business. This is because in the abyss of sea ships lose their identification marks and become all the same. So it happened with the "Black Prince". They were looking for him for four years. The Soviet government lost faith in the fact that the scientific expedition would achieve a positive result.

It understood more and more that the sea is merciless to ships and that during a storm the "Black Prince" could be completely destroyed and looking for its wreckage is tantamount to searching for a needle in a haystack. But the search did not stop for a day.

It is worth noting that the very process of studying the seabed of the Black Sea made it possible to discover a lot of new things in the underwater world of the Black Sea, forced the USSR to invest colossal money in the construction of the first bathyscaphe. With his help, the search for the sunken wealth was carried out.

All search and reconnaissance work to this day remains classified, it is only known that they took place in several stages, and each of them was crowned with the opening of a new submarine ship. Even when the "Black Prince" was found, it was kept in the strictest confidence, because millions of rubles in gold were still found. Today, an increasing number of historians insist that the situation with the "Black Prince" is indicative. In fact, a large number of search operations were carried out under the heading "top secret".

Scientists close to the Black Prince search operation indicate that in fact the first five-year plan, which was introduced on the territory of the USSR, was realized precisely at the expense of the gold raised from the sunken ship. Wealth was invested in the construction of new industrial facilities, which to this day delight the eyes of ordinary people, who increase the prosperity of the already seceded countries.

What is significant, in parallel with Soviet scientists, Japanese treasure seekers were also engaged in the search for the "Black Prince". They were deliberately aimed at a false trail by the Soviet government. Often, a real war is sharpening around such significant and gold-rich objects as the "Black Prince". There are a lot of people who want to grab a good jackpot. But in this story, the gold went to the government of the USSR.

So, in the history of the "Black Prince" can you put an end to it? Scientists do not yet recommend rushing with this, since there was no official statement about the gold found from the government of the USSR. But the studied materials of the search expedition give confidence that the ship was found, and a secret cargo was raised from its side for several months.

Was it gold? So far, there are only guesses, the confirmation of which can be provided by official sources, but they are silent. As the waters of the Black Sea are silent, in the depths of which not a single hundred secrets are still kept that have not been raised from the bottom of the Black Sea by ships. How their fate will develop, perhaps soon each of them will be able to tell their contemporaries the history of their era, or enrich their heirs with untold wealth.
