Vasaborgen is a museum with the 16th century ruins of the original Uppsala Castle that Gustav Vasa (also known as Gustav I) began construction on in 1549. Among the ruins, tales of the Vasa kings and their fascinating fate. Gruesome acts were committed here, including the horrible Sture Murders of 1549.
