English: The Hanseatic town Visby is the description of Visby, Sweden, from the UNESCO World Heritage Committee. Visby was founded in the 10th century, on the then independent Baltic Sea island of Gotland. The Hansaetic League formed it during ensuing centuries, during which it came to Denmark. In 1645, it came into Swedish occupation, in which it has remained until today.
