Sweden’s celebrated 64-gun warship.

Commissioned by King Adolphous to reflect Sweden’s stature as a major power, the Wasa was constructed from 1626-1628. Her maiden voyage proved tragic, as the top-heavy Wasa was barely a nautical mile into her travels when a gust of wind made her keel over. Soon, the Wasa sunk into the depths of Stockholm Harbor. Initial attempts to raise her proved to be unsuccessful. However, she was finally raised in 1961. Today, the Wasa can be seen at Stockholm’s Vasa Museum, where she has attracted over 29 million visitors.
