Culture Gotland can be a meadow in Fide, a sip of the locally brewed beer in a sailboat outside the coast of Östergarn, a painter who squint in to the light.
The big institutions are obvious eye-catchers, attracting attention far beyond the island. Länsteatern with personal flair and up-to-date acts, but also with unique performances like “MördarAnders and his friends”.
Gotlandsmusiken with their Concert series that is both broad and narrow but never uninteresting.
The cultural life on Gotland is the Art Museum, Körsbärsgården, Gotlands Museum, the Sculpture Factory, Bergman Center, Roma Kungsgård, Visby City wall, Bunge Museum, brewery culture in a bottle. It is the present and the past, runestones and Smaklösa, artistry, lambskin and creativity. Some claim that the island has the country’s highest cultural production per capita and so may be, cultural consumption is definitely high.
For those who like active culture, a visit to the Gotlanders Olympiad Stångaspelen is a must. If you want ti visit a there are 92 to choose from – each with its own unique expressions and its own storiy to tell. While you’re on the road, take the opportunity to visit one of the many craftsmen that you can find around Gotland.
Culture on Gotland is a fishing village in backlight, a breeze through Kärleksporten, a theater set in a community center.
