The Bezirk Rostock was a district (Bezirk) of East Germany. The administrative seat and the main town was Rostock.


The district was established, with the other 13, on July 25, 1952, substituting the old German states. After October 3, 1990, it was dissolved due to the German reunification, becoming again part of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.



The Bezirk Rostock, the northernmost of DDR, was situated on the coast of the Baltic Sea, in front of the Danish coasts. It bordered with the Bezirke of Schwerin and Neubrandenburg. It bordered also with Poland and West Germany.


The Bezirk was divided into 14 Kreise: 4 urban districts (Stadtkreise) and 10 rural districts (Landkreise):
