Gotland is Sweden’s largest island and the second largest island in the Baltic Sea.
It has a mild climate and varied scenery, with sandy beaches, cliffs, forests and lakes. Gotland’s rauken, amazing limestone columns reaching over 10 metres high, can be seen along the shoreline.
Gotland is a fully-integrated part of Sweden and a very popular holiday destination for Swedes, especially the young.
Visby, Gotland’s capital, is part of an UNESCO World Heritage site, as many of it buildings come from the Middle Ages. It is at its most fun and frenetic in Medieval Week in August.
