Maritime flavour of Rostock

Rostock

I came to Rostock this morning via a very smooth, uneventful hour and half on a Flixbus from Lübeck. I'm staying at Jellyfish Hostel for the night, then meeting up with my co-teachers tomorrow at the hotel we'll be staying at for the coming week.

After settling in to Jellyfish Hostel (pictured above, with the street it's on), I went for a lovely walk round town in the sunshine. The Alter Markt was my first stop.

Overlooking the Alter Markt is the Petrikirche, a church with a nautical theme; model boats hung from the ceiling and there were circular windows which reminded me a lot of portholes. I lit a candle on the circular candle stand.

I took the lift up the unusually high steeple to take in the views.

Then I went for a stroll along the riverside.

An unexpected elephant gazed protectively over the town from a rooftop.

Tomorrow I plan to have another look round the town and visit some interesting places I didn't see today.
