Capital of the Hanseatic League

... assemblage of high-quality ancient buildings that illustrate graphically the form and function of this type of significant human settlement. The urban fabric and overall townscape of Visby is its most important quality.

By virtue of its position, Gotland has played a dominant role in Baltic trade for many centuries between Western Europe and Russia. Excavations have indicated that there was a trading settlement in the early Viking Age on the site of ...

Medieval Visby

Our final port of call was Visby, Sweden, on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea south of Stockholm. I hadn't ever heard of Visby before this cruise, but it used to be another Hanseatic trading town and has a very long history. Many of its medieval houses and other structures still exist, some restored and some only as ruins. The city wall, built in the late 13th century, is also largely intact. As a result, Visby has ...

A Nice Bike Ride

... retracing our steps back to town and then turning left at the sea, we decided instead, intrepid adventurers that we are, to take a tangential route that should hit the coast to the south of Visby. Whilst we did actually (finally) achieve this, it did prove a somewhat circuitous route. Having said that, we now have a better inkling of how normal Swedes live, as the plethora of cycle tracks that we followed took us into and through housing estates of all calibres, from council-style ...
