Visiting the hanseatic city of Stralsund

May 5, 2016 | Europe | Stralsund | Picture

The Hanseatic League was a confederation setup by different merchant guilds and the market towns where they operated with the purpose of mutual defense and commercial trading. Between 1400–1800 it dominated the trade in the northern coasts of Europe. The German city of Stralsund was one of the most import cities from this confederation.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit the city where I took this picture.
