The Hanseatic city of STRALSUND in northern Germany

Some impressions of the Hanseatic city of Stralsund, that I've taken yesterday, the gateway to Germany's largest island of Rügen. Since 2002, Stralsund's old town is honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage, along Wismar.





Stralsund between 1611 - 1615 with the great medieval buildings of brick Gothic architecture, St. Mary's Church, St. Nicholas Church and St. James Church (Marienkirche, Nikolaikirche, Jakobikirche).

Thanks

The St. Mary's Church (German: Marienkirche)















Built some time before 1298, it is architecturally Gothic, an example of the brick gothic style prevalent in northern Germany. Between 1549 and 1647, it was supposedly the tallest building in the world at 151 metres (495 ft) tall.

In 1647

The fountain at the Old Market, essentially a hole that sprinkles water sporadically ... (a reference to the tides?)

Soviet stuff in front of the Marienkirche








The somewhat 'traffic-convenient' (no better translation for the German verkehrsgünstig) New Market in front of the Marienkirche
