Kreis (County) Schlawe in Pomerania
by Dr. Margret Ott
The county of Schlawe was situated afield in Eastern Pomerania along the Baltic Sea. It was adjacent to the counties of Koslin-Bublitz, Rummelsburg and Stolp.(1)
Being wedge-shaped, it ranged from the Baltic Sea to the hinterland. The county's landscape was divided into two parts: the fertile coastal region of the Rugenwalder Amt and the foothills of the Pomeranian ridge. Both parts were traversed by the old commercial route from Stettin to Danzig.
