Map of municipalities and towns in Vorpommern-Greifswald

Vorpommern-Greifswald is a district in the east of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. It is bounded by (from the west and clockwise) the districts of Mecklenburgische Seenplatte and Vorpommern-Rügen, the Baltic Sea, Poland (West Pomeranian Voivodeship) and the state of Brandenburg. The district seat is Greifswald.[2]

History[edit]

The district was established by merging the former districts of Ostvorpommern and Uecker-Randow with the subdivisions of Jarmen-Tutow and Peenetal/Loitz and the former district-free town Greifswald, as part of the local government reform of September 2011.[2] The name of the district was decided by referendum on 4 September 2011.[3] The project name for the district was Südvorpommern.
