While presenting some of the most spectacular nature in Sweden, Gotland also attracts those who take an interest in culture and history. “For the fourth year running, Gotland Museum is the most visited regional museum in the country. I think there are a few reasons for this,” Jenny Westfält, deputy museum director, begins. One reason underlined by Westfält is that some of the objects on display cannot be found anywhere else in the world. That is the case, for instance, with the picture stones. These are found in a part of the museum called Fornsalen, located slapbang in the middle of World Heritage Site Visby, the biggest town on the island.
