Visby, Sweden

Explore Medieval Ruins in Visby

Originally added by Mitchell Greenhalgh

Visby is a town both modern and medieval. Several ruins scatter the cityscape, and it's your job to find them all.

Drottens Ruin, St. Lars Ruin, and Helge Andes Ruin are just a few that you'll see here. Peruse the streets of this noble town and find beauty and history combined into majestic ruins with occult meanings. It doesn't matter where you go, as long as you're inside the Visby wall, you can spend the whole day exploring the town and its secrets. A quick look at Google maps will reveal several church ruins. However, not all are marked on the map, nor are all of them within the town wall. Check this website out to see a more comprehensive list of ruins and information about them.
