Vorpommern-Greifswald (German: Landkreis Vorpommern-Greifswald, Polish: Powiat 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] A lake called Berliner See is found in the district.

History[edit]

Vorpommern-Greifswald District was established by merging the former districts of Ostvorpommern and Uecker-Randow; along with the subdivisions of Jarmen-Tutow and Peenetal/Loitz (from the former district of Demmin), 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.
