Located on the western coastal region of Gotland Island, the city of Visby is the largest urban town on this isle. Since the year 1995, Visby Sweden has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage. With beautiful tourist attractions, cozy restaurants and excellent accommodation facilities, the city of Visby is a stunner. The name "Visby" is derived from the Old Norse Vis, which stands for a sacrificial place, and bær, signifies "settlement". In a different definition the origin comes from the Polish word "wyspa" which means "island".
Visby Sweden is a wonderful holiday destination that boasts of many places of interest. To name a few attractions we have St. Karin ruins, St. Nicolaus ruins, Fishermans Alley Gotlands Fornsal Museum, Strandgatan, Gunpowder Tower and Visby waterfront today among others. The most distinguished of all being the Ringmuren which is a 3.4 km long stretch of stony wall that surrounds the entire city and its old church ruins.
Visby Sewden Weather is most ideal during the month of August. This is the month when the city has its tourist peak time. Another reason why the city is crowded during this time is the annual celebration of Medieval Week-Medeltidsvecka. Music, theatre, drama, street shows are held to mark this age old festival. With people wearing medieval clothes and reveling in the fete, Visby is full of surprises and fun.
