Less than two months later the Germans were able to revenge. On the October 11th 1914 Pallada was torpedoed by the German submarine U-26 and she blew up with the loss of all hands, becoming the first Russian warship sunk during the war.

The wreck lies upside down in deep water, with the giant propellers as the topmost structures. The ship’s hull was torn into two pieces by the enormous explosion that took place at the time of the sinking, as the torpedo hit the ammunition storage.

The wreck of Pallada is a grave of more than 600 Russian sailors.
