Sweden - The Southeast & Gotland (Chapter)
This is the The Southeast & Gotland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sweden guidebook.
Southeast Sweden is a treasure trove of stoic castles, story-book towns and magical islands. Öland has a beguiling mix of dazzling beaches, windswept fields, windmills, ring forts and Iron Age burial sites. Gotland is a mesmerising spectacle of rune-stone scattered landscapes, hauntingly beautiful medieval churches and walled town Visby.
