Gotland and Port of Visby is the most central and one of the most genuine destinations in the Baltic Sea. Visby, main town on the Isle of Gotland, carries a unique heritage as medieval city. Since 1995 the town is included in the UNESCO List of World Heritages and once being one of the main participants in the ancient Hanseatic League. Visby inner town with its medieval merchant houses and cobblestone alleys, decorated with roses and ruins, surrounded by the massive town wall is considered to be one of the most well preserved of its kind in Europe.
The destination offers cruise lines a convenient port call during Baltic itineraries. Only minor and in some cases no route deviation is necessary when ships already pass just outside west coast of Gotland.
