A city in Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania, in the north-eastern province of the Federal Republic of Germany, in the Mecklenburg Lake District, adjacent to the Muritz National Park. The landscape is rich in numerous lakes, especially in the area of Neustrelitz, and extensive forests. Bismarck was to say about Mecklenburg that if the end of the world had occurred, it would have happened there 100 years later.
