Overview

West Prussia and Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.

The Prussian and German period in Pomerania is particularly interesting because of Otto von Bismarck. He was one of the most eminent European politicians of the 19th century, and who is still a fascinating and controversial character. Bismarck chose West Prussia as his living place and bought a mansion in Varzin / Warcino. It was there where he sought refuge from intensive political life, welcomed European leaders, hunted and strolled over neighboring forests.
