Greifswald, Germany is a Hanseatic league town dating back to 1199. It sits about 60km from the Oder River border with Poland. Due to its quick surrender to Soviet forces at end of WWII, much of the town's charming heritage architecture is intact. The Pomeranian State Museum is a highlight of the town.
