Insel, Sumpf and Parumer lakes are very close to the city - they are in the nothern part of Mecklenburg lake district. Over 28 000 people are living in Gustrow and that is twice as much as stands' capacity.
In 1226, Mecklenburg prince Henryk Borwin II founded collegiate, built there. Two years later Güstrow recieved city laws and the castle had been built soon.
In the sixteenth century, the city was destroyed by fire. Also in 1556, Güstrow castle suffered in another catasrophe. Furthermore, since then, Güstrow was Mecklenburg prince's headquarter.
