The ship Tre Kronor, which was believed to be lost 500 years ago, was netted literally by Captain Finn Olson coincidently.
This is how a trawl net made the most sensational discovery of modern age. The Tre Kronor, sent out in 1557 by the Swedish King, was supposed to find the legendary island of Rulantica.
The ship however disappeared without a trace and Rualntica was never discovered.
According to Caption Olson proof was recovered that suggests that the Tre Kronor actually did discover Rualntica back then.
‘Starting today Rulantica is no longer a myth – but reality’ says the Swedish captain in a telephone interview with the ACE president Malus.
The Adventure Club of Europe celebrates their annual Summer Party at Europa-Park on 2nd June 2017. Over 300 guests and ACE members will attend the party and the inauguration of the Voletarium. Performances from stars from the music and entertainment world will make for an entertaining evening, presented by the president of the ACE, Johan Malus.
The highlight of the evening is the pre-premiere of Europe’s largest Flying Theater, which is part of the Voletarium. The Voletarium was completely restored with the help of the Mack Bank and will be open to visitors to Europa-Park soon. It was the Eulenstein brothers’ institute and place of work.

The Adventure Club of Europe commissioned Professor Andrej Nikolajew to prove definitively whether or not the reclusive Eulenstein brothers in 1825 had already carried out the first manned flight.
All 251 current members of the Adventure Club of Europe convened in the evening at the Waldorf Astoria in Berlin. The event paid fitting tribute to the club’s achievements thus far. For 300 years now our members have been travelling and exploring the earth. Whether by land, sea, or air – the spirit of discovery unites us.
The members enjoyed up-to-date expedition reports and scientific lectures before an extravagant dinner in the ball room; rounding off the evening with a musical performance celebrating the last 300 years of music history.
The Adventure Club of Europe has received a generous donation of over €1,000,000 from Mack Bank. The money will be used to reopen and repair the Institute of the Eulenstein Brothers. As Johan Malus…
