Sweden 2: Stockholm and Visby

Sweden  2: Stockholm and Visby

Stockhom, the 13th century capital and economic center of Sweden, is the natural gateway to the Baltic Sea. Built on 14 islands and surrounded by canals, it is often referred to as the "floating city." Its magnificent architecture illustrates its wealth of the past. Though the royal family no longer lives at the Royal Palace, it is still the most popular attraction. People love to view the traditional changing of the guards each day there at noon. Stockhom is also home to Scandinavia's most visited museum, the Vasa Museum. The story of this warship is an amazing one. The Vasa sank within one nautical mile of the start of her maiden voyage in 1628. This program shows rare footage of the wreck being salvaged in 1961. Today, the Vasa, completely restored, is the only remaining, intact 17th-century ship in the world. Next we travel to Visby, the "City of Roses," located on the northwest coast of Gotland, the largest island in the Baltic Sea. Few towns compare with this 13th century preserved city - the #1 place to find rare, medieval art. There are few City Walls from medieval times that are as well preserved or more beautifully situated. Also Visby has more churches than any other town in Sweden. 03/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
