Gotland is a fun place to visit. Traveling there is not a
big problem. There is train and bus service from Stockholm to
Nynäshamn. It is here where the ferry leaves from.
Visby is definitely the highlight of Gotland. Visby was a
trading center for Northern Europe as early as the 10th century.
They have more than 10 church ruins that date back to the 12th
century. In addition, they have a wall that they built to
protect the city.
Other areas to visit are Fårö with its sandstone formations
(Digerhuvud) and the church in Öja (My favorite church in Gotland).
A day at Stora Karlsö is also a worthwhile trip (especially if
you are interested in birds).
Handicrafts and history are a large part of the Gotland
experience. Swimming and beaches are also an important part
of the perfect vacation in Gotland.
