Sister cities of Stralsund
Stralsund (German pronunciation: [ˈʃtʁaːlzʊnt], Polabian Strzałów), is a city in Western Pomerania, Germany, situated at the Southern coast of the Strelasund (a sound of the Baltic Sea separating the island of Rügen from the mainland).
Two bridges (the Rügendamm and since October 2007 the new Rügen Bridge) and several ferry services connect Stralsund with the ports of Rügen. A former district-free town, it is the capital of the new district of Vorpommern-Rügen since the September 2011 district reforms.
Since 2002, Stralsund's old town is honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage, along with Wismar.
Together with Greifswald, Stralsund forms one of 4 high level urban centers of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The main industries of Stralsund are shipyards, fishing, and, to an increasing degree, tourism, services and IT (Information Technology).
