TravelPod Member ReviewsScandic Visby
We were here on a weekend package and our room was fine, clean and functional. A typical Swedish breakfast buffet was included. Unfortunately, as vegans, most of the options were not good for us. But they had soy milk and prepared oatmeal for us so it was fine! The only real disappointment was the free wifi. It was difficult to connect and very slow. Not great for a blogger!

Whoa. Bicycling around Visby was incredibly easy at times (on long, flat, dirt roads) or extremely exhausting (up a steep, cobblestoned hill). At times, we had to get off our bikes and walk them up the incline. Nonetheless, it was a great and very fun tour! ...
Visby, our second UNESCO World Heritage site in as many days. Visby is another walled medieval city, also a Hansa city, on the the Island of Gotland. It was beautiful and Andrea wants to live there. It had many ruined churches, a result of getting too powerful in the Hanseatic league and getting razed by Lubeck. Who knew this trading organization had ...
... of Visby. In the 1300's Denmark invaded and all sorts of people had to fight to protect the city. The graves were full of people too old, too young or too disabled to be fighting in the first place. Pretty sad. They had a selection of bones in the cabinet which were all from different people and were all deformed in some way from before the battle. Some had breaks which had been so badly set that the person would have been crippled and others ...
