Stockholm: The Vasa Museum. These pictures do not even do the Vasa justice. The Vasa is a 17th century warship that sank ~1000 metres into its maiden voyage. The Vasa was raised from Stockholm’s harbour in 1961 and subsequently restored to 98% originality. The smaller ship is a to scale model of the Vasa while the last picture shows some of the carved woodwork that was put on the ship to impress and strike fear into enemies hearts. I was in awe seeing this ship in person and the immense scale of it. The undertaking to build a ship by hand that is 4-stories high is impressive. While it is sad that ~30 crew members lost their lives that day, I am grateful for the opportunity to see history in person and the craftsmanship that went into it. It was truly awe inspiring and magnificent. #vasa #vasamuseum #vasamuseets #stockholm #sweden #shipbuilding #yearsinthemaking #carpentry #shipwright #goosebumps
