    Russian submarines will finally have a chance to berth near Stockholm, after Swedish bar owner Martin Eriksson decided to build a bar out of old submarine parts, the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported.

    Eriksson, who is also a former singer, thought it would be a great idea to open a "submarine-bar" on a little island just south of Stockholm.

    There already are an ice bar and a hospital bar in Sweden, so why not the submarine bar.

    "We will gladly accept submarines from any country," Eriksson said, telling the newspaper that the idea occurred to him last year when the Swedish military was trying to hunt down an alleged Russian submarine.

    Last October the Swedish Armed Forces launched a major search operation off the coast of Stockholm after receiving information, reportedly from a civilian, about sightings of an unknown underwater object in the region.

    The Swedish media claimed the submarine might have been a Russian vessel. The search was finished with no result several days after, however Sweden kept claiming that there had been at least one foreign underwater vessel in Swedish waters.

    Well, next time that happens, the Swedish military could at least find a Russian submarine in the bar and have a couple of pints after a long unfruitful day of searching.
