Situated right in the middle of the Schwerin lake the Schwerin castle is an eye catcher for visitors. It looks really like a castle from a fairy tale.
Schwerin is the capital of the federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern though it’s quite small. The city is situated near the Baltic Sea but also has a lot of water itself. There are twelve lakes in the city region. The biggest one is the Schwerin lake right in the city centre where also the Schwerin castle lies on an island in the lake.
The first time I saw the castle I was surprised. I didn’t expect it to be that big.
Unfortunately, you cannot visit the biggest part of its interior as the federal parliament is housed in the castle. But there is a little museum about the history of it. The appearance of the castle had been formed over one thousand years. Its current look mirrors its historicist origins.
The time when I visited Schwerin a big garden exhibition was held in the palace garden. However, I think the garden looks picturesque also without the additional beds and installations. Schwerin has also a nice old town where you find more buildings from the historic period.

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
