The liveliest spot in the city is the Universitätsplatz, the central square in the City of Rostock, where the “Joy of Life” fountain in the middle of the square provides a lively distraction for both children and adults. The University of Rostock’s main building is situated just off the square.
Restaurants, coffee shops, offices, department stores, art galleries, and even residential tucked above some shops makes this center a fun place to have an extended lunch, or an afternoon of browsing . . . and as always, architectural details on some of the buildings caught my attention.
As I walked back to the Central Railway Station, I passed through one of the city’s many well maintained residential areas, where large multi-unit and single family homes lined the streets, small shops and bars provided retail opportunities, and small parks and open space buffered the homes from the busier commercial district.
