Established in the 11th century by Slavs, Schwerin is a city of ancient history located in the middle of one of Germany`s most beautiful lake districts, the `Mecklenburger Seenplatte`. The main attraction of the city is the Schwerin Castle, located on an island in the lake of the same name (Schweriner See). It was for centuries the residence of the Dukes of Mecklenburg and today is the seat of the Landtag (state parliament). Don`t miss the Schwerin Cathedral, a fine example of Gothic brick architecture.
