    How expensive are groceries in Visby? Are in-season things really cheap or does it not matter much? Are the groceries overall more expensive than in the bigger cities like Stockholm or are they remarkably cheaper?
    Also, what are the pros and cons of living in Visby? I am curious to know!

    Hi TravelingMarshmallow!

    Food is a little bit more expensive in Visby than on the mainland, mostly because it costs more to get things to the island. But there isn’t a huge difference in terms of prices.

    There are also a lot of farm shops on Gotland so it’s possible to get good value groceries during the summer half of the year. Will you have a car? Or are you just staying in Visby?

    Visby is great! It’s really pretty but it can get busy in the summer when tourists arrive from the mainland.


    Hi hi!

    Since I do not have a driver’s license yet I don’t have a car. However, I will take my bicycle with me as I will be living there for the next 2 years. I will start my master’s degree at Uppsala University this September, so I try to get as much information about my future home city as possible.
