The area is the most popular leisure zone among citizens, where you can attend the amusement park, the open-air museum “Skansen”, the theme park “Junibacken” for children and many other attractions. The Swedish warship Vasa displayed in the museum with the same name can boast with a peculiar story. This ship sank on its maiden voyage in the year of its construction and was salvaged after 333 years from the sea bottom. Nowadays Vasa has become a symbol of the Swedish “great power period”.
