Wide, sandy beaches, natural beaches and hidden swimming coves are a typical feature of this vast region. Little harbour towns and fishing villages radiate maritime romanticism and unique museums such as the Ozeanum in Stralsund arouse scientific curiosity.
Wide sandy beaches, natural beaches and hidden swimming coves with waves and meadows, shells and reeds border the Strelasund, Bodden, Peene and Stettin Lagoon. Little harbour towns and fishing villages radiate maritime romanticism. Inland, rivers such as the Peene, Recknitz and Tollense wind their way through a landscape that has remained unaffected by the passage of time.
Avenues make up a large part of the country routes through the province once part of Sweden and, subsequently, Prussia. Behind the shady rows of trees, one can spy ancient, now spruced up, manor houses and palaces or restored village churches and overgrown ruins. These are the picturesque milestones between traditional Hanseatic towns and sleepy villages.
Follow in the footsteps of famous ancestors. In the Hanseatic town of Anklam, a museum has been dedicated to the pioneer of aviation, Otto Lilienthal. The Pommersche Landesmuseum in the Hanseatic town of Greifswald now houses paintings and stories by Caspar David Friedrich. The ruins of Eldena Abbey, a recurring theme of the Romantic artist, are not far away.
