Ordered by King Gustav II Adolf, a regent obsessed with status symbols, the magnificent ship Vasa sank after only 1,300m in front of spectators on its first journey in August 1628. After several failed attempts the ship was finally salvaged in 1961. Almost intact after 333 years in the water, it’s now on display here in its full glory.
