Stern of museum ship Vasa, salvaged from the bottom of the sea just outside Stockholm city in 1961 after 333 years. Put together and displayed in a fantastic museum at Djurgården.  It was the pride of the Swedish war fleet and sank on its maiden voyage in 1628.

Model of the Vasa, showing how blinged-up and gaudy she was. Unfortunately, she was top heavy and unstable and sank on her her first excursion before she left the harbor.
