Österport
Visby

Österport, the East Gate, is one of the main gates in the city wall of Visby. Just outside is the modern town center of Visby. Hästgatan running west from here was once one of the main streets of Visby with much traffic. It is now closed for cars and in the summer crowded with tourists. The buildings on each side are from the sixties and seventies. It was much debated if they were suitable replacements for the older buildings.
