Thistlegorm Posterized, Egypt
Sinai peninsula

This is a model of one of the most famous ship wrecks in the Red Sea, the S.S. Thistlegorm. It sunk in October 1941 after an air raid by German planes and now rests at a maximum depth of 29 meters on the sea bed in the reef of Shaab Ali on the west side of the Sinai. The cargo of trucks, jeeps, motorcycles, airplane parts, rubber boots, ammunition and even 2 locomotives with tenders is still present today and attracts thousands of scuba divers every year.

This model of the S.S. Thistlegorm can be found near the heart of Naama Bay, the center of Sharm El Sheikh.

About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx.
