5 fascinating things to see and do in Stockholm, Sweden


Vasa Museum - Galärvarvsvägen 14, Stockholm, Sweden

Sweden has its own version of the Titanic. The Swedish navy built a flagship in the 17th century that was planned to be a giant floating fortress. The ship had 48 light cannons, two large cannons, eight “three pounders” and six large howitzers. With all this firepower, the ship looked like it would be in danger of capsizing. However, the royal court insisted the ship be finished on schedule. On 10 August, 1628, the Vasa set sail and capsized after one nautical mile. You can visit it though!
