The Island of Roses Featured in
Gotland is a fairy tale place on Earth. Beautiful and peaceful with a plentitude of sheep and the gracefulness of the sea. The island has plenty of historical places too, including 350 sunken ships, more than 100 Gothic churches, 70 Iron Age forts, and over 400 cairns.
However, most interesting is Fiskargränd—a beautiful street of roses, where the flowers are in bloom in late autumn, sometimes even until early December! More than a romantic place, the island is a great reason to visit Sweden in its darker times.
