Cruising to Visby

Party central

When it comes to enjoying a good party in Sweden, you can't get much better than the town of Visby. Situated on the west coast of Gotland Island, it has a population of 23,000 people and is particularly renowned for its imposing ringwall around the outside of the Old Town.

During the summer, cars are not allowed to pass this barrier - a significant help to the party goers looking to transform the central area into a massive festival. And this is pretty much what happens as temperatures soar during July and August.

In fact, the parties are known to get so big that residents often choose to leave their homes and go elsewhere, renting out their apartments to the young crowd while they're away.

However, there's also a lot of history to be explored here, including church ruins in the Old Town, several museums and of course, the ringwall itself.
