This main island with many bays, lagoons and inlets is known as Usedom and is half-owned by Poland. It is the second largest island in Germany after its neighbor, Rügen.

It holds many of the regions seaside resorts including Heringsdorf which has a traditional pier, an observation tower and many great houses and mansions on the waterfront.

The island also protects the estuary of the river Peene, which helps to surround the ancient Hanseatic city of Greifswald on the eastern coast.

The Ostvorpommern district capital of Anklam is also Hanseatic and is still well fortified. The busy town offers considerable river trade opportunities and is well known for its shipbuilding. Its extensive agricultural lands away from the coast have filled its ships with produce over the centuries and continues to do so today, keeping the towns docks alive.
