After a brief retrospective on the current situation in the field of underwater archaeology in Serbia and information of where we are in the process of ratification of the UNESCO Convention on the protection of underwater cultural heritage, a project “Searching for šajka” is going to be presented in main features. “Searching for šajka” is the project of historical and archaeological investigation and documenting of sunken historical ships in our rivers and is expected to present a support to the policy of the protection of underwater archaeological sites in Serbia. Our final goal is to find material remains of šajka and, as this was a type of ship that navigated along the Middle and Lower Danube area and along its main tributaries, we will use this regional meeting to invite for cooperation and try to make this project an international one.
