15th Meridian

The Westpomeranian Region is bisected by the 15th meridian. A meridian is a line on the surface of the Earth with a semicircle shape, which connects the two poles. The surface of the 0° and 180° meridians divides the Globe into two hemispheres – Eastern and Western. As a result, the 15th meridian means that this particular meridian is located exactly 15 degrees east of the Zero Meridian (Greenwich).

In the Westpomeranian Region, the 15th meridian has been honoured. In Trzęsacz, the Museum and Tourist Information Centre was named after it; in Kikorze, there is a commemorative rock and a hotel named after the meridian; in Stargard Szczeciński, there is a monument and a roundabout named for the 15th meridian; and in Trzcinno, there is a monument.
