Administrative region of Köslin
The administrative district of Köslin ( Cöslin in the 19th century ) in the Prussian province of Pomerania existed from 1816 to 1945.
In 1816 the city of Cöslin became the seat of the regional council for Western Pomerania . On December 1, 1900, the district had 587,783 inhabitants, on May 17, 1939 there were 597,869. In 1900 the area covered 14,030.73 km², to which 1900 cities and municipalities were distributed.
The seat of government was initially a building from the middle of the 18th century on the corner of Regierungsstrasse and Kleiner Wall. As the administration grew, the government was gradually spread over eleven buildings in the city of Köslin. A new, representative government building was not completed until 1939.
