Kick back, relax and read something while resting from all the walking you've been doing. Also good to warm up here if visiting during the off season.

Something not usual in most places in Sweden. Located at the coastline in Visby, near the garden. It is not that big, but has enough :)

In Visby there are lots of places of interest. One of the latest is Almedalsbiblioteket, Visby Stadsbibliotek. Next to the famous park - Almedalen. In the heart of Visby. Go there.
