• Visit Gotland, Sweden's beautiful island destination

    2011-09-08

    The Swedish island of Gotland has been a big draw for both local visitors and international travelers. This breathtaking region has great beachside activities and plenty of cultural and natural attractions to delight tourists who visit the scenic island.

    Travelers to Gotland should first head underground to the Lummelunda Cave, Fodor's reports. This natural wonder lies close to the coast and allows guests to explore miles of stalactites and cavernous formations. Visitors may need a good pair of rubber boots, because much of the floor is damp or covered in water.

    Medieval churches cropped up around Gotland like wildflowers during the 12th and 13th centuries. One of the best preserved churches in Visby is called the St. Maria Kyrka, boasts a uniquely designed pulpit and stunning exterior architecture.

    Visby as a whole has been honored as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its dedication to protecting its medieval features. While in town, travelers can sample some historical culinary delights as well at the 50 Kvadrat restaurant, reports Travel and Leisure. This establishment has a delicious signature dish that consists of grilled Baltic turbot fish with horseradish, beets and browned butter.
