1067 DE - Historic Centres of Stralsund and Wismar (2002)

Brief Description

"The medieval towns of Wismar and Stralsund, on the Baltic coast of northern Germany, were major trading centres of the Hanseatic League in the 14th and 15th centuries. In the 17th and 18th centuries they became Swedish administrative and defensive centres for the German territories. They contributed to the development of the characteristic building types and techniques of Brick Gothic in the Baltic region, as exemplified in several important brick cathedrals, the Town Hall of Stralsund, and the series of houses for residential, commercial and crafts use, representing its evolution over several centuries."


"维斯马和施特拉尔松德这两座中世纪的老城位 于德国北部波罗的海沿岸,是公元14世纪至15世纪汉萨同盟(the Hanseatic League)的主要贸易中心。公元17世纪至18世纪,这里曾是日尔曼领土的瑞典管理和防御中心。这两座老城展示了波罗的海地区建筑的砖结构哥特式风 格,这集中体现在当地数个主要的砖结构教堂、施特拉尔松德市政厅以及其他一系列居民住宅、商店和手工业作坊上,这些建筑向世人讲述着这两座老城数个世纪以 来的变迁。"
