You can't holiday in Stockholm without going to The Vasa Museum; a seventeenth century vessel, the Vasa is the only preserved ship of its time, and is truly a work of art.
A beautiful structure, the boat is a staggering 69 metres long, and was intended for war. Sinking in 1628, it wasn't until 333 years later that it was recovered from the ocean's depths, to be restored to a condition anywhere near its original magnificence.
The Vasa Museum is the most celebrated in all of Scandinavia, receiving over a million guests per year, far more than any other in the area. Take a stroll through all nine of the exhibitions there, and learn all about what life was like onboard, and why the Vasa was finally defeated.
A lovely souvenir shop can be found adjacent to the building, as well as a fine restaurant that serves food throughout the day.
