St. Catherine's Monastery
The St. Katharinen Monastery in Stralsund, or Katharinenkloster for short, is one of the buildings of the North German brick Gothic and is one of the & auml; oldest monasteries in the Baltic Sea region . It is also one of the few monasteries in northern Germany whose Gothic structure has been almost completely preserved.
The Kulturhistorisches Museum of the Hanseatic City of Stralsund is the city's most important museum alongside the German Sea Museum Stralsund. It is headquartered in a former Dominican monastery, the Katharinenkloster. Established in 1859 as the Provincial Museum for New Western Pomerania and Rye, the museum is the oldest museum of its kind in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and presents extensive collections on folklore and the cultural and art history of the Western Pomerania region. It houses both permanent exhibitions and special exhibitions on changing subject areas. The permanent exhibitions are dedicated to the prehistory and early history of the region as well as the history of the city. Special exhibitions deal primarily with the fine arts.
