Near Boge on the east side of Gotland you can find this shipsetting called Tjelvars Grav (The Grave of Tjelvar).
According to thefolktale, the first person living on Gotland for about 6000 years ago was called Tjelvar, and this is supposed to be his grave, made by stones in the shape of a ship.
The shipsetting have the length of 18 meter and the width of 5 meter.
When you visit Gotland you really have to go and see the sea stacks that could be found all over the island. In the Gotlandic dialect of Swedish the sea stacks are called Raukar.
The sea stacks is created by 1000 of years of wear from wind and water.
See some more of my pictures of Raukar
This photo is taken on the place called Bogeklinten near Slite. The highest Rauk at Bogeklinten is over 8 meter.
The Swedish author Astrid Lindgren is very famous all around the world, and her first character is 'Pippi Longstocking'. Some films after the Pippi-books have been made and most of them are made in Gotland. Pippiýs real house Villa Villekulla is placed in Kneippbyn and I've been there. Itýs really worth a visit!
I have to admit that the city of Visby really amased me! It's a small but a nice historical town with an old city wall and an authentic centre with many beautifull buildings.
In Gotland we rented a tandem bycicle and I have to say that we really enjoyed it because the island is flat, the roads are good and the distances are not too big!
This is a nice beach in Gotland and on this beach there is some more space than on Tofta and there's also more of a family atmosphere!
Tofta is probaby the most popular beach on the island for youngsters! Allmost everybody on this beach is under 30 and it is a nice place to see the swedish youth.
Gotland has a great variety of flora and the number of species of flowers is more than 500. Many of them don't exist in other parts of Sweden.
Kutens Bensin at Fårö is a rather special place. Here you will find a collection of all kinds of things from the 50's and 60's.
All mixed with a lot of Elvis related objects...
