The Vasa Warship is an incredibly well-preserved 17th century ship that was the state of the art when it was built, but was top-heavy and when it set out for its maiden voyage in front of the king and a large crowd in 1628, it toppled over and sank. The ship was recovered in 1961 and due to the cold water environment, it was in extremely good condition. It is now open to be seen by the public intack in a museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
