The tourist attraction is created in Croatia which is the only one of its kind in the world – Stations of the Cross under the sea in the city of Trogir. The Stations of the Cross are located at a depth of around 4 metres in Jelinak bay west of Trogir on the Dalmatian coast. The project in Croatia is the only dedicated Stations of the Cross devotion in the world under water, and aims to be another tourist attraction on the coast, attracting pilgrims and also keen divers.

The statues, which are made from reinforced semi-solid concrete, are around 1.8 metres in height and weigh about 1,000 kilograms, which means they will be able to withstand sea currents and remain exhibited. Stations of the Cross refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.
