Vasa celebrates 50 years above water
Back in the day the Vasa Ship was built to impress and to show off then super power Sweden's military might. But less than an hour into her maiden voyage in 1628 she keeled over and sank.
This week, 383 years later, Vasa celebrate 50 years above water as one of Sweden's main tourist attractions.
30 million people have already visited the Vasa museum since it opened in 1990 nearly 30 years after the ship was salvaged from the bottom of the Baltic Sea near Stockholm's harbour.
