Djurgården Island

Stockholm Vasa Museum -- The museum houses the Vasa, a wooden warship that sank in Stockholm Harbor during her maiden voyage in 1628. The Vasa Museum is one of the most popular attractions in Stockholm Sweden.

In August 1628, the ship set sail on her maiden voyage, however, a sudden gust of wind caused the ship to rock and water poured in though the open gun ports. The ship sank amazingly quickly, just 100 metres from the harbour. The sinking of the ship, which was intended to strengthen Sweden’s power in the Baltic region, was a humiliating blow to the king, who had been heavily involved with its building.

The ship lay at the bottom of the Baltic Sea for over 300 years until 1956, when Anders Franzén led a team to raise the vessel. The brackish waters of the Baltic do not contain certain wood destroying organisms found in the open sea and as a result, the ship was well preserved. The restored ship is an impressive sight and this museum is a must-see for anyone visiting Stockholm city. (www.vasamuseet.se)
