Visby, Sweden overview

Situated on the Swedish isle of Gotland, Hanseatic Visby was one of the most powerful cities in Europe. Today quaint homes and churches huddle together inside 13th-century walls. In former times, it was called "the city of ruins and roses," for along with its rose-covered churches, there is one somber sight - Gallows Hill, a place of execution so villains "might die looking at the loveliest spot on earth."

Visby was a complete surprise. Perfectly preserved medieval town and walls, and we arrived right on the day of a medieval festival! I wish the ship would have left us there a few more hours. I definitely want to come back to do a bike tour of that island.
