The walking tour continue to Östermalm, the most elegant district of the city known for the Swedish Historical Museum, where Viking weapons are exhibited, and for the Vasa Museum. The Vasa Museum is one of the most popular museums in Stockholm. The museum is built around a 17th century ship, the Regalskeppet Vasa, which capsized and sank in the port of Stockholm during its maiden voyage.
