In fact, the Polish name of the region, Pomorze Zachodnie, should not be literally translated as 'West Pomerania' because the historical region of Pomerania has its western part in Germany (see Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania)! Thus Pomorze Zachodnie should be translated as the western part of Polish Pomerania. It is considered one of the greenest regions of Poland, and one of the most attractive ones when it comes to tourism. It is characterized by incredible diversity of the landscape: beaches, hundreds of lakes, and forests full of wild life, spreading mainly up the hills of the glacial lakes areas. West Pomerania is also rich in various forms and styles of architecture that were built during the Middle Ages as well as the Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance periods. There is a diverse repertoire of theaters, festivals, museums and galleries. During a few-day long annual Sea Festival in Szczecin, a number of free open air concerts take place. In Świnoujście during the summer, the FAMA - Academic Youth Arts Festival takes place -- an event with several years worth of tradition, which attracts not only young people but also older alumni. In Międzyzdroje, there is a Festival Of The Stars which draws many popular actors. In Wolin, a Viking Festival takes place, which draws "Vikings" from all across Europe.
