... was built in1623 and launched in Stockholm harbour with great fanfare. It set sail on its maiden voyage, went for about 500 metres, caught a gust of wind and tipped. It was top heavy and sank in the harbour. 333 years later in 1961 it was salvaged and raised. Being in the brackish Baltic waters it had been very well preserved.

This gallery is also home to a world famous collection of paintings by the Norwegian artist Edvard ...

Considered to be the cradle of ski jumping in Norway, it was the site of the 1952 Olympic competition. It was a very impressive – very high and is only used by true experts. Like many other places we have visited, they had a zip-line from the top (no, we didn’t do it) and a simulator. There was time for a brief ...
