Winter in Visby

Posted on Updated on

Before I came to Visby, I read that Gotland is the part of Sweden which counts with more light hours, and probably one of the best climates. But unusually, this winter is being one of the coldest and snowiest for the last 30 years. It is curious since something similar happened the year I lived in Finland, they had the warmest winter for the last 20 years. Anyway the city snowed is lovely and that is why I took a bunch of pictures to show you. It is not so unusual to have sunny days here. Do not compare it to Spain though.
