If you ever go to Stockholm, Sweden, try to have one of your excursions at the Vasa Museum.It is a famous tourist attraction place where you will see the Original Vasa Battleship that sank just 20 minutes on its first voyage 380 years ago. It was only recovered 47 years ago. The reason why it sank was it is heavy, and is made of Oakwood. The position of the canyons is just near the water. So as it was sailing, it was heeled over by a small breeze, and water entered the ship easily and capsized it. The amazing things of the Vasa if you ever see it are the sculptures from the front, stern, and back of the ship and they are very well preserved in the museum.
