The West Slavs ("Turn") were in the West Mecklenburg Obotrites (or Abotriten) and east of Mecklenburg and Pomerania in the Wilzen or Liutizi. Characteristic of the Slav settlements were castles seats as rulers and political centers. Originally they were built on hilltops, created later with ramparts in areas with poor access to lakes and rivers. The seat of Mecklenburg Obotritenfürsten, 6 Located miles from Wismar, gave the country its name. The "Michelsburg" was first 995 mentioned, als Kaiser Otto III. here did issue a certificate. More Slavic castles were in, among other things Schwerin, Teterow, Merl, Krakow, Quetzin, Loitz and Demmin. The castle served as a refuge in times of war for the villagers of the surrounding. In addition to the princes and nobles took priest a prominent position. This is documented by the Temple castles in Arkona on Rügen, in Rethra oder Swante Wastrow, The sacred island. maprambowGrown up alongside the ruler and the temple sitting in a process of fortresses, comparable with the emergence of cities in Western Europe, even before the German colonization of city-like structures.

Even today, many interpret local- and landscape names, derived from natural and gender, attention to the Slav settlements; the Pommeranen, po = Morje of living by the sea; Brats = mountain;

Place names ending in-ow, -itz, -nitz, -and in-jokes.

-ow as in the Local- and clan names Rambow is a Slavic place-names ending, which is found mainly in Poland and East Germany. It is a patronymes Suffix.-ow (-at): from Slavic-ov, of. B. Malchow, Lüchow
