Even an immersive image such as this one fails to convey the overwhelming massiveness of this ship.

It also presents too small of a viewport to properly show the many interesting aspects of the ship, especially the carved wooden figures mounted on the stern.

My other photospheres of the Vasa show her from different angles and positions.

It's been quit a few years between learning about this ship and finally being able to visit her. A trip to Stockholm is definitely worth the time!
