Scandinavia's most visited museum, the Vasamuseet offers exhibits on maritime history and Scandinavia in the seventeenth century. Although the Vasa sunk during her maiden voyage in 1628 and spent over three hundred years under water, much of the warship has been restored and is now on display in this building, itself a destination for architecture buffs. Take a 25 minute guided tour around the Vasa's impressive hull, watch a film to learn about the archaeological processes that saved her or simply wonder at the trajectory of Scandinavian maritime history at this unique museum.

On August 10, 1628, the Vasa sailed from its construction site. The "Vasa" was named after the first king of the Vaasa dynasty in Sweden at the time. However, such a magnificent sailing ceremony became the ship sailing. Less than 2 nautical miles of funeral songs. The
Vaasa was ordered by the Swedish King Gustav II Adolf. The project took about 2 years. The ship has 3 masts that can hang 10 sails, 52 meters from the dome to the keel, 69 meters from the bow to the stern, and weighs 1200 tons. When it was built, it was one of the most powerful warships in human history. The Vaasa is a unique treasure trove of art. It retains hundreds of statues, and more than 95% of the components are in perfect condition, yearning for the world's tourists. Regardless of its size or appearance, the Vaasa is a pinnacle of the kingdom and the authority, strength, culture and ambition of the country.
