VRELO MAYBE DEEPEST UNDERWATER CAVE IN THE WORLD



National.

Italian diver Luigi Casati, who is part of the international diving expedition that has been exploring underwater Vrelo cave of the Canyon of Matka, reached yesterday the depth of 190 meters, the 'Vrelo' Diving Club said Monday in a press release.

The international expedition will explore Vrelo cave by August 15 and will try to prove the theory that it is the deepest one in Europe and maybe in the world.

Vrelo, which was nominated for the new Seven World Wonders, has been researched for several times. Its horizontal length is 450 meters and 98 meters in vertical, where from a new gap opens whose bottom has not been reached yet.

According to speleologists' assessments, Vrelo's depth is 330m, thus being the deepest underwater cave in the world, surpassing the Bushman Hole in South Africa, which holds the Guinness Record with 282 meters.
