mecklenburg is a land of lakes, you know?
like in brandenburg, we have seen interesting stuff again and learned that from the 4th century were huge parts of today's east german federal state of mecklenburg-vorpommern settled by west slavic tribes. let's hope the slaves have been assimilated (or they flew to the east?) and not killed ...
our stops at our way up to the baltic sea and at the way down to bavaria later on were:
- lake innerer schweriner see
- castle ruin reppiner burg
- lake roter see
- sternberg in mecklenburg (not my grandma's birthplace sternberg in bohemia)
- lake tollensee
- old slavic castle burg stargard built 1100 - 1200
