Conlon and Peter journeyed by train to Stockholm, Sweden this weekend and really enjoyed this beautiful capital city. The highlight of Saturday was a trip to the Vasamuseet. It houses the Vasa: the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world. The warship sunk on its maiden voyage in 1628, and was salvaged in 1961. Over the next 50 years it was restored to its original glory. The museum was built around the ship and the ship is covered with hundreds of carved sculptures.
They also visited Gamla stan, Stockholms medeival city center where the city was founded in 1252. It is reportedly the largest and most well preserved medieval city centers in Europe. One of the smallest alleys is only 90 cm across at its narrowest point ! I am so jealous!
