Historic Center of Stralsund UNESCO World Heritage Site
St. Nicholas Church and Stralsund City Hall
The medieval town of Stralsund was a major trading center of the Hanseatic League in the 14th and 15th centuries. In the 17th and 18th centuries it became a Swedish administrative and defensive center for the German territories. It contributed to the development of the characteristic building types and techniques of Brick Gothic in the Baltic region, as exemplified in several important brick cathedrals, the Town Hall of Stralsund, and the series of houses for residential, commercial and crafts use, representing its evolution over several centuries.
