The medieval city Visby, at the island of Gotland, Sweden. An early morning in mid December on my way to the (modern) harbour and the ferry for mainland Sweden. Visby is a well preserved medieval city and declared as a World Heritage according to UNESCO. It has been partially burned down or destroyed a couple of times, usually during conflicts and wars between Denmark and Sweden during the Middle Age. As a Hanse Town it was an important trading center in the Baltic Sea during the 13th to 15th century.
