Sailing on the Baltic Sea into Visby, Gotland

In the middle of the Baltic Sea lies the island of Gotland, home of the medieval town  of Visby, also known as the “city of roses and ruins”.

Home to a well-preserved wall that rings the city dating from the 12th century, Visby is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It’s location in the middle of the Baltic Sea has long made Visby a popular port, with sailors and pirates.

Today it’s a vacation destination for Scandinavians, and a popular stop on Baltic cruises.
