Today Schwerin is actively developing as a popular tourist destination. This is natural as the city and its surroundings are rich in cultural and natural places of interest that traditionally attract tourists. First of all, we should mention Schwerin Castle, which has gained its present appearance in the middle of the 19th century thanks to efforts of gifted architects. However, the castle has retained some traits of earlier eras.
Schwerin Palace Garden is a monument of national importance. However, it is often referred to as one the world's masterpieces of landscape decorative arts. Your visit to City State Museum will be no less interesting. Tourists are usually attracted not only by the building itself, but also by a unique exhibition, the core of which is the collection of the Grand Duke. Approximately 100 years ago new exhibits were added to the collection.
Rich theatrical traditions of Schwerin make this city even more attractive. Outdoor opera performances, which are often held here in summer, are particularly impressive. A beautiful building of the theatre created in the late 19th century (Renaissance style) was built by the famous architect H. Daniel.
This architect is also the author of a truly interesting tower of the Cathedral (1889-1892), the height of which reaches 117 meters.
