A trip to Visby (Gotland, Sweden July-2010)
Visby is as said sometimes refered to as the City of Roses.
Can you guess why?

Among the most notable historical remains in Visby are the 3.4 km long stone wall called Ringmuren ("the Ring Wall"), that encircles the city and the old church ruins.
The work on the ring wall was likely begun in the 12th century. Around 1300 it was rebuilt to reach its current height, acquiring the characteristic towers,
although some towers were not constructed until the 15th century. The ringwall is still largely intact.
It is part of the World Heritage 731 in Visby.
