Mecklenburg-Western PomeraniaBook - 2007
Tracing a unique coastal landscape of bays, inlets, endless tree-lined roads, and quiet lakes, this guide illustrates why Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is one of Germany's most popular holiday destinations. The chalk cliffs of Rügen, the seaside resorts of Usedom, and the earthiness of nature on the Fischland peninsula are all explored as well as the Mecklenburg Lakeland, which offers a varied environment of significant cultural monuments. The history of the Hanseatic League in the old trading cities of Stralsund, Wismar, Rostock, and Greifswald is documented, and the region's many palaces and manor houses are depicted, testifying to the wealth of their age. The resort architecture of many towns along the Baltic Sea coast is reviewed as well as the history behind it. Revealing the many focal points of the region, this guide also reports on the pirate Störtebeker, megaliths and menhirs, and the artists and writers brought forth by the area as well as castle stories of the past and present.
