Sweden develops Stralsund and Stettin as principal fortifications. Redoubts outside the city gates change its perimeter. Garrison headquarters are built 1746 on the old marketplace in Stralsund. A prestigious main building for the University of Greifswald is constructed in the same period. The earl's palace in Putbus is enlarged. The king commissions the construction of a noble damsel's foundation 1733 in Barth, designed with a strict Baroque flourish.

The separation from Prussian Pomerania in 1720 strengthens the hand of the landed gentry. The von Bohlen family erects one of the most important Baroque palaces in 1732 in Karlsburg.
