Rostock, Germany. Rostock was part of East Germany, a Communist country. The Germans of today's unified Germany do not think highly of those people of East GermanY. They believe them to be lazy. We, however, found them to be gracious and congenial. Rostock is clean and without graffiti, unlike many other eastern European cities.
