The History of Sea Resorts Along the Baltic Coast

Dr. Marie-Louise von Plessen



Accepted 13th November, 2017


The history of sea resorts along the Baltic coast, was based on a lecture I held at a colloquium organized by the French Ministry of Culture in 2013, at the château de Cérisy in Normandy. The text was to be published on their website, yet after constant exchange of ministers of Culture since then it never was. It might be of interest to an Anglo American audience, as the roots of all Baltic Sea resorts stretching to nowadays Lithuania and Oblast Kaliningrad, refer to British predecessors.
