The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.
When visiting Stockholm, and you would be allowed to visit only one thing: go to Vasa: the setup of the museum is fantastic! When you come out, you learned something on acient Swedish way of living, but also the basics on shipbuilding.

If you ever nerver have been to or walked through a street art in a central city, this is where you start. Go Borås and walk the full tour helped by the perfect map handed out at tourist information. Let yourself be guided around, make a stop for coffe and then keep going again. Its a nearly surreal experience and unique in its own way. Go see. Walk the mile.

This space holds a guitar similar to the one Keith Richards used to play the Honky Tonk Women riff. And here's one like the one Eric Clapton used for his solo in Layla. And the kind that Jimi Hendrix set on fire in Monterrey. But how in the world did these and hundreds more rare and priceless guitars from the 1950s and 1960s end up in Umea and become Guitars - The Museum? Why aren't they hanging in the MoMA in New York, or in the Tate Modern in London? This is the story of how the Ahden twins from Vannasby managed to put together the world's finest collection of vintage guitars surreptitiously, almost in secret. Guided tours 12.00, 15.00 & 17.00.
If you're in Umeå looking for something to do, then the Guitars Museum is worth a visit. The entrance fee is alright according to Swedish standards (if you're a student you get a reduced price, but this might only apply to Swedish students). The staff there are absolutely lovely, and you can feel how passionate they are wheen you talk to them.
There's a guided tour which is included in the entrance fee, you just need to make sure to time your visit so you'll be there before it starts.
The tour takes about 45 minutes, but you'd probably want to spend some more time on your own to check out the things that weren't covered by the tour.

It was only the second time that I walked over a frozen lake and I really start to love it! There were small sleds you could take, you can skate or just walk. I took one of the sleds and really felt like a child again! It's a great experience and definitely a must-do if you stay in Luleå.

Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with Exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present. It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum. Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum. Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum's science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator - like flying for real!
My wife and I spent a few hours at the museum, which was fantastic and was not only enlighting on the Swedish involvement and development of airplanes but also very informative on the Swedish involvement during the world wars
What was an added bonus was to see the aircraft that was shot down by Russian Migs
Recovered/salvaged from the bottom of the ocean many years later,is now in the museum

It remains today almost untouched since turn of the last century.A home created by a person with both economic conditions and resourcefulness, based on tradition and knowledge of the then modern construction method.Particularly striking is the large timber constructions in the east which houses the nine meter high hall.Very knowledgeable guides
