The giant 64 gun ship Vasa was built on the orders of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 1600's. Unfortunately, it wasn't built very well, as it collapsed and sank a few hundred meters into its maiden voyage out of Stockholm's harbor. Over three hundred years later, researchers located the wreck and pulled the ship to the surface. The majority of the ship's structure was intact and it now stands in restored glory inside Stockholm's most interesting museum. The Vasa is the best-preserved 17th century ship in the world.
