like B follows the A, vorpommern follows mecklenburg, isn't it? well, you wouldn't believe it, but today's mecklenburg-vorpommern is a german federal state which was established only after the WWII. as germany lost the war, the area of vorpommern lost its major industrial city of stettin to poland (even when stettin is on the left oder river side) and built the administrative unit of mecklenburg-vorpommernin in the former GDR / DDR. 

it is the german state with lowest density of popupalion and if you asked me, even the few people there are somehow cold / unfriendly / frozen ~ maybe because of the rough climate at the baltic sea 😈

  • königsstuhl cliffs and beech (buche) forests (unesco heritage), the remaining / archaeological finds (from the 6th - 8th century?) of slavic fort herthaburg
  • lohme
  • cape arkona (kap arkona) ~ putgarten, vitt, lighthouse, 4-headed slavic god svantevit / swantewit, the remaining / archaeological finds (from the 6th - 8th century?) of slavic fort jaromarsburg (jaro-mar, you see? 👻)
