    Hi ! I'm Marie-Cerise and I'd be happy to show you around the city of Stockholm. I'm from Belgium but I moved to Stockholm because I fell in love with the city that I know pretty well now. I studied translation and thanks to my numerous trips I can speak fluently French, English, Spanish as well as Swedish. I enjoy walking around Stockholm in the nature as well as the city center, ... I like to meet new people from everywhere in the world to learn more and more about different cultures. I also like to share what I know on Stockholm ;) I'll be pleased to spend time with you ! Do not hesitate if you have questions or requests !

  • What you will see and do

    10th August 1628, Vasa was ready for her maiden voyage and left Stockholm. At the time, she was the most powerfully armed warship in the world. However, after a few minutes, the ship was hit by two strong winds and she sank less than a mile into her journey.

    Why did she sink? What happened to the sailors who were on board? How could they build a so great ship that sank so easily? Why is Vasa in a museum now?

    Come and follow me in the Vasa museum and you will get the answers to those questions as well as the answers to many more.

    Price :
