There are a lot of museums all over the Europe starting from nature to art, but I haven’t seen anywhere something similar as the Vasa Museum. It’s all about the ship. But it’s not an ordinary ship. It is a Swedish warship build 1626-1628, hand carved work of art covered with drawings and designs who sank after sailing only less than two kilometers. In 1961 it was finally salvaged with a largely intact hull. Now the ship is one of Sweden’s most popular tourist attractions. No picture will demonstrate its magnificence as good as just seeing it by yourself and imagining how it was to build such masterpiece in 17th century.

The Vasa Museum is situated on the island of Djurgården. It takes about 30 minutes to walk from the Central Station and 10 minutes from the metro station Karlaplan. Here you can have guided tour around the ship and learn about Vasa’s history – the king, the construction, the maiden voyage, the sinking, the salvage, the preservation, and much more. The tour takes about 25 minutes and is included in the ticket price.

Sooner or later all Stockholm guests visit this museum and this is not just a coincidence. It deserves its huge popularity.
