Just off the coast of Sweden, this week's City Focus lies on the island of Gotland. Welcome to Visby! This city is arguably the most well-preserved medieval city in Scandinavia with its famous town wall and many church ruins. This UNESCO World Heritage site draws in many visitors every year, and one of its most notable tourists was Hayao Miyuzaki who used Visby as one of the main visual inspirations for the movie Kiki's Delivery Service. The island is only accessible through boat and air traffic, so is it worth it to go? YOU BET! And if you're visiting Visby in the near future, you might be able to catch their very first PechaKucha Night on June 12th at Joda Bar.
We can't wait to see what they've got! Good luck, everyone!
