Scandinavia has a strong maritime heritage and thousands of vessels have sailed up the Swedish Coastline to reach important trading ports in the Baltic Sea. Due to storms, fires and poor navigation, many were lost at sea, the most famous one being the Wasa (although Wasa sank because it was built top-heavy and had insufficient ballast). Many shipwrecks date back to the 16th and 17th century and are protected as cultural heritage.
