Visby North Cemetery

Cemeteries are particularly considered as important places in Sweden. They are green oases and meaningful places for both people and animals. One of those is Visby Northern cemetery located by the Baltic Sea in northern Visby, Gotland.

Cemeteries are considered to be clear and important place in the city. They are green oases and important places for both people and animals. An example of this is Visby Northern cemetery. It is located north of the city not far from the sea.

The lighting planning of the church and the cemetery around aims at lifting the beautiful natural landscape and contemplative calm. At the same time, the cemetery should be experienced as accessible and safe. Furthermore, a part of the task was to minimize the impact of new buildings in the surrounding area, securing the cemetery’s future.
