Built to fight the kingdom of Poland, Vasa sank in 1628 on its maiden voyage in Stockholm harbor before it could ever engage another ship. 333 years later it was successfully raised, preserved, and restored by Swedish divers and scientists. The Vasa Museum, on the island of Djurgården in Stockholm, displays the world's only intact 17th-century warship.
