Vasa – Sweden

Warship Vasa
Warship Vasa – Sweden

Another postcard from Don.

The Vasa sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. Not in battle – but because she was built incorrectly, and none of the designers had the courage to tell the king that there were problems. She just tipped over as soon as she got into rough waters.

She sat on the ocean floor till 1961, when she was raised, and is now in a museum in Stockholm.
