... I head to Vasamuseet. After it's maiden voyage of 1300 m in calm weather, the royal warship Vasa capsized in Stockholm's harbor in 1628. It was supposed to be the pride of the Navy. Not until 1956 that a researcher rediscovered it and restoration efforts began. It's the largest boat ever restored & was spectacular!

To walk the city, and get ...
... waterways cruise was waiting … as were HOHO cruises. Apparently there was also a HOHO bus near to the dock but I didn't see it at all. There was also a smallish souvenir shop on the dock area too and I could see postcards but no time to buy anything.
We boarded the boat … quite a long one and by the time we got on board there was not one bench where there was a "window seat". We went towards the back of the boat ...
