The Botanical garden in Visby was created in 1855 of 'The Bathing Friends' (DBW), and was early a place for useful plants. Today it's one of the best botanical gardens in Sweden with exciting trees and flowers. It's also enriched with plants from all over the world.


Here is a rhododendron, blooming during the first weeks i June.
The ruin of St. Olof church in the Botanical garden. It was built in early 13th century, and was one of the biggest and most lavish churches. Only the west tower of the church is seen above ground.
