Wismar

Founded in the 13C, Wismar retains a wonderful atmosphere that reflects its prosperous centuries in sea trade, brewing, and weaving.

Wismar is a town in northern Germany on the Baltic Sea. The city has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 2002. The centre of the old town is the huge Market Place, one of the largest in northern Germany, surrounded by elegant buildings with styles ranging from 14th-century North German Gothic to 19th-century Romanesque revival to Art Nouveau. The square's focal point is the Wasserkunst, an elaborate wrought-iron fountain imported from Holland in 1602.

Another notable building in the square is an ancient Gothic warehouse called The Old Swede, erected around 1380.
