Hanseatic town on the Baltic

Rostock View of the River Warnow, copyright Irma Schmidt
Rostock, the almost 800 year old Hanseatic town, has retained much of its original charm and today, together with the seaside resort of Warnemünde, has a diverse cultural scene. This vibrant and cosmopolitan university and port town has a historical centre with typical north German brick architecture and a tangible maritime atmosphere.
