Boats in Stockholm - a popular theme. I came to Stockholm with this ferry in June 2019.
Then I read ...On the evening of 6 November 2019 SPL Princess Anastasia ran aground outside Lidingö in Stockholm en route to Helsinki, after suffering a black-out on the ship's electricity, that resulted in lost of propulsion and drifting. The vessel was carrying a total of 1065 passengers. No injuries were reported.The Swedish Transportation Agency believed the black-out to have been caused by a mixture of Russian and Swedish diesel oil creating a blockage
The Swedish Coast Guard dispatched rescue teams to the scene and a tugboat to tow the ship back to Port Stockholm for hull inspections. was en-route from Stockholm to Saint Petersburg (via Helsinki).
