Vasamuseet, Stockholm

Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit Stockholm, one of the Scandinavian cities that was on my "I definitively want to go there list". The week before I asked F. a Swedish college of mine what would he recommend to visit and the first thing he told me about was the Vasa Museum, a Swedish warship built between 1626 and 1628 that sank on her first trip very close to the Stockholm harbor ... that would an interesting story, but the amazing second part more than 300 years after is that they were able to recover the ship that was kept in a very decent condition because of the composition of the water around that area. So you get this incredible of experience to visit this gigantic ship almost as it was in the 17th century. I would recommend the visit to Stockholm just to see it. In this picture you can see the ship on the background with a small Sailor doll in the exhibition (using the wonders of perspective it looks like real one!).
