Photographer's Note

Visby is the biggest town on Gotland and is often called "the city of roses and ruins".
Medieval history is very well preserved in this beautiful little town, everywhere is old houses to be found and ruins of churches hundreds of years old.
Visby is on the UNESCO list of world heritage and is a typical hanseatic town with a ring wall sourrounding the town centre, more than 200 medieval houses made of limestone and small houses made of wood and stone from "only" a few hundred years ago.
Visby is also a centre of modern arts, both graphical and interactive arts aswell as classical arts, paintings, sculptures and handcraft.
In the summer the city is a appreciated place to visit for tourists, families and young people looking for a good time. The city comes alive with bars and discos, restaurants and cafés, festivals and concerts.
Visby is really a place worth a visit!
