Did you know:

- The battleship Vasa sank in 1628 after just sailing just over 1300m

- She lay below the surface for 333 years until being discovered by Anders Franzén and salvaged in 1961

- Some blame King Gustav II Adolf for the disaster, who ordered a large ship with so many heavy-calibre cannon for the ship’s dimensions. Others blame Master shipwright Henrik Hybertsson who was inexperienced at building ships with two gundecks.
