Photographs Medeltidsveckan: 2002 – 2011
This Medieval festival in Visby on the beautiful island Gotland in Sweden is the place to go. Visby is a city with a huge stone ring wall, where each year thousands of people visit the festival dressed in medieval clothes. When you walk around in Visby, you are transported back into Medieval times. At the Medieval Fair you can buy Medieval clothes, and accessories.
The best way to enjoy Medeltidsveckan is to be dressed in Medieval clothes and take part in the parades, walk around the market and hang out with friends in Kaplitelhusgården.
Medeltidsveckan is packed with activities, music and jesters. Poeta Magica is a returning group. Just like Gycklargruppen Pax, a group of talented young jesters, Gycklargruppen LEeR performs at various events in Visby. One of the highlights is the jousting tournament. There are fire shows and spontaneous concerts. The smell of smoke is omnipresent. At the Medieval market you can eat roast wild boar, glazed apples and much more.
In the web shop you can buy photos, photos on canvas from Medeltidsveckan or download the original image for private use only. A publication license can be obtained by contacting the photographer or through the web shop.
