Vasa Museum - Stockholm (photos by Patricia Almeida)
The mighty Vasa warship sank in the Stockholm harbor in August 10, 1628, in her first voyage. It is one of those Titanic-like stories. It took three years to build what was the most expensive and ornate ship of Swedish Navy. In a few minutes it was under the water after sailing barely 1300 meters. Rediscovered in 1956, the ship was lifted from its grave, restored and now can be seen in all its glory in this beautiful museum.
