Visit Visby

Introduction

Visby lies to the south of Sweden's capital city Stockholm on the island of Gotland. The name Visby is in keeping with the town's rich historic roots, enduring from the ancient past when the town was nothing more than a Stone Age sacrificial site.

With a more relaxed atmosphere than mainland Sweden, Visby celebrates its history every August, when Medieval Week transforms its quiet cobbled streets with stunning re-enactments of the city's capture by the Danes in 1361.

This festive celebration draws the crowds though, so if you are looking to experience the tranquility of Visby's atmospheric ruined churches or the majestic Domkyrkan Cathedral, the best time to visit is early in the season.
