Description

During eight days in August the Middle Age is back. The town of Visby on Sweden's Gotland island provides the perfect backdrop with its 200 medieval houses on winding lanes, splendid church ruins, and the magnificent city wall frame. The Medieval Week includes special markets and music concerts, theater performances and lectures. There are also a number of Medieval religious processions and prayer meetings held throughout the week. The highlight for most visitors is the clash of medieval knights on horseback and fighters on foot along with archers and jesters in a grand tournament. It is probably the most exciting history lesson you will ever experience.
