Neustrelitz to regain royal title

In a tribute to the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and its history the parliament of the City of Neustrelitz has voted to return the title Royal Residence (German: Residenzstadt) to the former royal capital of Neustrelitz. Once the decision is confirmed by the Ministry of the Interior in Schwerin the signs on roads leading into the city will be changed to read “Residenzstadt Neustrelitz” to reflect the city’s new title.
