Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) is a Land (state) in Germany, located in the northeastern corner of the country between Brandenburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony and the Baltic Sea, and the neighboring country of Poland. The name is sometimes abbreviated in German to Meck-Pomm (think Mc-Pom), though locals of the state are unlikely to use the name, but you will be understood.
It is the least populated part of Germany and thus offers vast natural reserves. Historically, Pomerania continues to the east following the Baltic coastline of Poland. The inland of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is relatively flat, as is most of northern Germany, though there are various glacial hills and valleys. There are a large number of lakes formed by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Mecklenburg and Pomerania are known for their many historical Baltic seaside resorts with noble architecture and fine sandy beaches, that are unmatched in most of Europe. The region also offers many hidden castles and manor houses, well-kept medieval towns and an intact nature.
