Borders. Pomerania is the area along the Bay of Pomerania of the Baltic Sea between the rivers Recknitz and Trebel in the west and Vistula in the east. It formerly reached perhaps as far south as the Noteć river, but since the 13th century its southern boundary has been placed further north.
The history of Pomerania starts shortly before 1000 AD with ongoing conquests by newly arrived Polans rulers. Before that, the area was recorded nearly 2000 years ago as Germania, and in modern-day times Pomerania is split between Germany and Poland.
Le Land réunit l'ancien duché de Mecklembourg — subdivisé entre 1815 et 1934 entre les territoires de Mecklembourg-Schwerin et de Mecklembourg-Strelitz — et la Poméranie occidentale — issue du démantèlement de l'ancienne province prussienne de Poméranie.
