Private Stockholm and the Vasa Museum
Also known as the Venice of Scandinavia, Stockholm boasts more than 50 bridges connecting its 14 islands along the Baltic Sea archipelago.
Your journey begins with a panoramic ride to Stockholm City Center where you will be greeted with a magnificent view of 8 of the city's islands. Continue past Gamla Town, the Royal Palace, National Museum, the Royal Dramatic Theater, Strandvagen Boulevard and more as you make your way to Djurgarden and the Vasa Museum.
Once at the museum you will come face to face with the Vasa, the oldest, most fully preserved ship in the world. This vessel, complete with 700 sculptures and 64 cannons, began her maiden voyage in August of 1628 and sailed 1,300 meters before sinking in the harbor. Take advantage of your time her to a variety of exhibitions depicting the ship's construction, sinking, salvaging and preservation. Get a taste of what life was like on board, view authentic relics brought up from the deep and learn a little about a few of the 30 crew members who perished thanks to osteological research and reconstruction. Be sure to visit the gift shop before your return trip back to port.
