The Hanseatic town of Stralsund is situated in Mecklenburg West-Pomeranian’s northeast. The town was founded in 1234 by the duke of Rügen. Stralsund played an important role in the war of the Chamber of Commerce against Denmark, after it became a part of the Hanse. After the futile siege of Stralsund by Wallenstein in 1628, the city was extended to a fortress. In 1648 it became a part of Sweden, whose government for Vorpommern had its residence in Stralsund. In 1936 the dam to the island of Rügen was built, a firm connection to the island. The city of Stralsund was heavily destroyed because of air raids in 1944 and Stralsund was handed over without combat at May 1st, 1945.
