Visby

The only city on the Swedish island of Gotland, Visby tells its ancient stories of Viking peoples and mediaeval merchants to the tourists who visit its lands. 

The port of Visby is located at the foot of the hill on which its majestic city walls still stand. Over three kilometres long and dotted with towers, the boundary wall is perfectly preserved and encircles the beautiful historic centre. Taking a cruise to Visby is rather like discovering a place suspended in time, with red-roofed houses decorated with beautiful roses, cobblestone streets, which shops and delicious cafes open onto, and an amazing 15 churches. The 12th century Lutheran Cathedral in Visby is a must-see on your cruise. The ruins of the St. Nicholas’ Church are also very beautiful. Walking down on the promenade towards the port of Visby, you can admire the beauty of the island’s coastline, lapped by the Baltic Sea and dotted with limestone formations known as rauk.
