The Royal Warship
WASA capsized on her maiden voyage in August 1628 and never once fired her guns
at the enemy. Raised in 1961 the Vasa is the only well preserved 17th century
warship in the world. She has her own museum in Stockholm,
I start of by telling
about the sons of the 16th century King Gustav Wasa . Gustav Vasa created the
modern nation-state Sweden. There is also the story of Gustav II Adolf, grandson
of Gustav Vasa.You may also read about early 17th century Stockholm. Then
follows an article about the Vasa, containing various information about the
ship, the disaster in 1628 and her raising in 1961. Finally there is the story
of the Vasa´s many sculptures and their hidden meaning. There is a lot to be
learned from studying the decorations of the Vasa. The many sculptures adorning
the ship are expressions of various ideas and beliefs of that age. Facts about
the swedish King Gustav II Adolf, King of Sweden at the time of Vasa´s building,
are abundant when learning about the sculptures.
