Our cabin agency recommends a trip to the city of Visby. It is the only city on Gotland, the city is characterized by a tall stone wall that stretches around most of the city and a beautiful historical downtown. The city of Visby used to belong to the Hanseatic League (founded in 1356) and is well preserved with many medieval houses, churches and church ruins. Thanks to all these cultural treasures, Visby has been selected as world heritage site by UNESCO.
