One of the most fascinating relics on view at the Gothenburg City Museum is "the Äskekärrsskeppet," a real viking ship. It is the only viking ship on display in the country, as well as the world's only vessel of this kind that has runic inscriptions. The display is called "Vikings --Between Odin and Christ."
