Ship ahoy!

Celebrated in song by the 18th century Swedish bard Bellman and used as a command ship by Gustaf III in the war against Russia 1788-90, the royal pleasure craft Amphion has had a long history and at the maritime museum, Sjöhistoriska, her gilded and opulent stern can be seen in all its glory. Amphion was designed by the renowned master shipbuilder Fredrik af Chapman, once the owner of the shipyard, Djurgårdsvarvet where during the 18th and early 19th century a number of ships, brigs, schooners, galleons and sloops where built. Today the new shipyard, Nya Djurgårdsvarvet, is in a slightly different location but still has many fascinating tales to tell.
Further maritime historic treasures can be seen at the famous Vasa Museum with its unique and well-preserved 17th century man-of-war ship, or for something a bit different explore a lightvessel from 1903, see Sweden’s maybe smallest exhibition about pleasure boats or take a peep in Dyktankhuset, where a pool was built to be used for crews to practice escaping from a sunken submarine.
If you want to get out on the water, why not hire a canoe or a pedaloe, or join the sailing school, you can even moor your own boat at Wasahamnen, one of Stockholm’s most central marinas.
