Slite Things to Do
These days the Heidelberg Cement Group has taken over most of Sweden's lime quarries still in use, and that includes the Slite works. You can visit the factory on guided tours and learn more about limestone and what it is used for, including cement making. More fascinating than it sounds actually, since this factory has outdoor storage bigger than I don't know how many football grounds. You can also stop at a roadside resting place overlooking the pit to read more about it if you don't have time for a tour.Related to:

Near the harbor of Slite you will find this windmill, located on a small hill. The windmill itself is worth a visit, but when are standing there on the hill, you will also see the great view over the sea in the east and the island in the west. As you will notice, there are not many hills at all on Gotland, so you better check them out if you find some.Related to:
The great Swedish cement company 'Cementa' has its resources of limestone in Slite. Groups with tourists can visit the site after calling. The site is a cut of huge dimension.

Slite Tourist Traps
The thing that Slite is most known for is the limestone mine. Well, if you are interested in enormous open-cast mines this limestone mine with a history from the 17th century maybe is worth a visit. But else you better spend your time in Slite on something better.

Favorite thing: Slite is located on the north east coast of Gotland, and is a good place for relaxing and enjoying the sun by the Baltic Sea. The beach isn't that large, and even on a warm day it wasn't so much people there, so it's a big chance that get a lazy and calm day by on the beach.Related to:
