Gotland is one of Sweden’s most popular tourist destinations, and it is not hard to see why – Gotland is a tranquil part of the world, but with the facilities of a metropolis. Here, there is something for everyone, from the peace of the countryside to the surprising buzz of central Visby. It is no surprise that Gotland is one of Sweden’s most popular summer destinations, for families, fun-seekers and people just looking for peace and quiet. Gotland offers something for everyone.
Don’t be fooled by Visby’s city wall, steeped roofs, roses and narrow streets. Visby is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, as can be seen at practically every turn in the town centre, but Visby is also a modern town that has constantly changed and developed over the centuries. While the change may have happened quite cautiously, time has never stood still, despite history making its presence felt around every corner. Literally, Gotland – a different land.
The Games on Gotland are intended to be environmentally friendly. It is therefore worth remembering that Region Gotland is one of 75 in Sweden that are dubbed eco-municipalities. This means that Region strives for sustainable development, based on the local lifestyle and with a focus on nature at all times.
