  • The main ports that have emerged over the centuries are Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Malmö, Stockholm, Kiel, Lübeck, Rostock, Stettin, Gdynia, Gdynia, Königsberg, Riga and St. Petersburg.

Again and again there have been heavy storm surges on the coast, some of which also attack the coastline and especially the islands. Some islands were formed after heavy storm surges. And also today these are still changed by the tides, thus the change between ebb tide and high tide, in their appearance. The people at the Baltic Sea have been shaped by these catastrophes and have great respect for the violence of nature.
