Default Rostock

Does anyone live in or near Rostock? If so, what's the place like? THanks for any open opinion. Nat

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
From the lack of replies, it doesn't look as though there are many BE members in the Rostock area. If no one responds, try the Towtown site, in the Meck.Vorpommern section.

Default Re: Rostock

I have visited. A fairly grim mid-sized town. Suffered de-population after unification. Other towns in Meck-Pom are nicer. Schwerin, for example.

Sorry, I am probably just daft, but can't find this section?
Any help?
Thanks

Sorry, there was a typo, and the full title of the site is in any case Toytown Germany. Under Forums, you'll find North Germany and Meck.Vorpommern.
For what it's worth, my two daughters both lived in Berlin for several years (one still does), and they both say that Rostock has nothing to write home about.

The only opinion I have is that their soccer club Hansa-Rostock attracts a rather right wing fan club.

Otherwise, I don't know. I think property is cheap there, and jobs are scarce there.

Before 1945 it was one of the centres of aircraft production. That was not continued in the GDR. It was the chief seaport of the area.

Thanks...that seems to be the main tenor here!

Yes, that's what we have been told as well, that Hansa fans seem to be fairly "right wing"...
