>Greece opens underwater museum
希腊开首家'水下博物馆'
Greece has opened its very first underwater museum, where visitors will be able to explore an ancient shipwreck.

The Peristera shipwreck actually takes its name from a nearby uninhabited island and was first discovered in the early 1990s.
实际上,"佩里斯特拉号"沉船是以附近一个无人岛的名字命名的,首次于上世纪90年代初被发现。
The ship is believed to date to the 5th century, and is filled with archaeological gems for divers to discover, including the thousands of amphoras of wine when it crashed, hundreds of which can be found on the seabed.
据信,这艘船可以追溯到公元5世纪,船上装满了考古宝石,待潜水爱好者发现。船在沉没时,船上装有几千只双耳瓶,现在,海床上还可以找到几百只这样的双耳酒瓶。
The Underwater Museum of Peristera opened on Aug 1, but it currently isn't planned as a permanent exhibition, with divers invited to explore until early October.
佩里斯特拉水下博物馆8月1日对公众开放,但目前尚无计划将其作为永久性展览,游客潜水参观的时间只持续到10月初。
For those who aren't divers or who prefer to stay on land, the museum has an information center offering virtual tours of the underwater site, complete with exhibitions around the history of the shipwreck and area.
对于那些不会潜水或喜欢呆在岸上的游客,博物馆有个信息中心,提供水下遗址的虚拟游览,以及关于沉船和当地历史的展览。

为重振贵州旅游业,从4月到7月,贵州省政府在全省420个A级旅游景点实行免费门票。
