Schwerin is the smallest of the cities that are the capital of their lands, here lives less than 100 thousand people. Nevertheless, perhaps because of the capital status, it looks pretty solid. Mainly due to the large number of lakes and beautiful castle.

Schwerin Castle is the jewel of Northern Germany, definetely one of the top 5 castles of the country. It was built in the years 1845-1857 by order of Grand Duke Friedrich Franz II. The castle stands on an artificial island and looks extremely photogenic from almost any angle. Especially in the evening.

Castle combines several architectural styles and numerous spiers beautifully reflected in the water of Schwerin Lake. Near the castle is a dock where you can go on a boat trip and see the castle from the water.
