Charming, beautiful and unusual town. The setting and the climate look very attractive too.

Beautiful. When was most of the city built? It looks perfectly preserved.

The earliest history of Visby is uncertain, but it is known to have been a centre of merchandise around 900 AD. It was inhabited as early as the Stone Age, probably because of the access to fresh water and a natural harbour.
The Medieval times were the "golden age" in terms of architeture for the city. Nowadays it is one of the most well-preserved Medieval cities in Europe.

It is magnificent.

I like the absence of more modern buildings and I like the setting on the water. Also - the clear, bright northern climate is my favorite. So it looks like a very nice place to visit.

What church was this? Or was it a monastery or convent? It looks like it has been a ruin for centuries.

It´s the ruins of St. Peter's and st. Hans's Church. Two churches that were built together.
