WHAT YOU VISIT
Vasa Museum:
Located in the neighboring island of Djurgården, the Vasa Museum was built specifically to house the Vasa, the oldest fully preserved ship in the world. The Vasa sank in Stockholm's inner harbor on her maiden voyage in 1628
and stayed in the mud of the Stockholm harbor for over 300 years before she was raised in 1961. Due to the unique chemical makeup of the Baltic Sea, the ship suffered relatively little decay. View the 226-foot-long warship plus thousands of artifacts found on board.
Cruise of the Archipelago:
Speeding along at full speed, topping 40 knots over open waters, view historic sites along narrow canals and past islets and skerries to the inner part of Stockholm's archipelago. Cruise past Fjäderholmarna, the first real archipelago islands reached from Stockholm, and pass Vaxholm, an idyllic fortress town founded in 1558. Opposite the town is Vaxholm Castle, dating from the 16th century. Keep a lookout for seals that frequent these waters.
