Gotland – region of sun and limestone

Off Sweden’s southeastern coast, Gotland emerges as a realm of enchantment, where history, language, and culture converge into a distinct island experience. Favoured by Swedes as a quintessential summer retreat, this Baltic haven offers an escape that even locals find exotic, with its landscapes and traditions differing from mainland Sweden. Visitors are drawn to ancient Viking remnants, the serene beauty of untouched beaches, and the medieval grandeur of Visby’s city walls, a 13th-century UNESCO World Heritage Site encircling the old town. The island’s unique limestone formations, known as Rauks, sculpted by millennia of natural forces, stand along the coast, serving as dramatic sentinels of Gotland’s rugged yet beautiful shores, creating a surreal and captivating panorama for all who explore this extraordinary island.
