  • The place is worth to visit. The Doberan Minister is unique example of Brick Gothic cathedral of the monastery survived to our time. The cathedral was burial place for many members of Mekleburg dynasty. The entrance fee is around 3 € ,but you are allowed to make photos. The cathedral is huge and very beautiful. The territory around it also very beautiful, park ( used to be cathedral cemetery) with small lake and small garden full of flowers and other plants ( said to be reconstruction of the 800-years old apothecary garden).I highly recommend to visit this place. It is on close quarters of Rostok.
  • A hidden gem in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, this Gothic church still conserves many of its original details. Perhaps the most beautiful church made in bricks of the all Baltic area. And the surroundings of the church are charming as well!
