Mecklenburg-Vorpommern | Schwerin | Rostock
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a state in Germany located in the northern part of the country. The state has a long coastline on Baltic Sea and is known for beautiful beaches, cliffs, islands, National Parks (More than any other German state), holiday resorts and some historical landmarks.
These all features make the state one of the leading tourist destinations in Germany. The state is ranked as 6th largest, in terms of area covered and 14th most populous German state.
Human activities in the region date back to the end of Ice Age approx. 10,000 years ago. Some of the earliest known people were the “Germanic” people whom later migrated to the other regions. The region was again settled in the 6th century by “Polabian Slavs”.
In the 12th century, the region was occupied by Henry the Lion and converted most of its population towards the Christianity. The state saw huge displacements during the wartime. First, when the Soviet forces were arriving, most of the people fled to get protected from the Soviet brutalities, later as the war ended, thousands of people arrived in the state from the former German territories.
This increased the population of the state by 40%. The state remained under the Soviet administration until Germany got finally reunified. Afterward, the state modernized rapidly in every sector and is back on track.
Rostock is the largest city of the state and Schwerin serves as its capital. Bordering states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern include Brandenburg towards the South, Schleswig-Holstein towards the West, and Lower Saxony towards the Southwest.

Main features include beautiful beaches, scenic landscapes, dense forests, and lakes. Most of the natural area is protected by the government to preserve their beauty. Furthermore, the state is divided into six districts.
The state faced several economic issues after reunification as the state was under the governance of Soviet Union for a brief period of time. The industries that East Germany established were non-competitive as compared to the Western German industries.
But today, the state’s economy is back on track with leading sectors of biotechnology, information technology, tourism, services, and maritime industry. Tourism is one of the leading industry of state and growing.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
