What do you like most about Rostock?

I was born in Rostock, and what I like most about our city is its proximity to the sea, but also the atmosphere in the city center with its colorful historic buildings. The astronomical clock in St. Mary's Church, for example, is also particularly exciting and I always enjoy looking at it.
