Pomerelia,[lower-alpha 1] also known as Eastern Pomerania,[lower-alpha 2] Vistula Pomerania,[lower-alpha 3] prior to World War II also known as Polish Pomerania, is a historical sub-region of Pomerania on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea. The designation of Gdańsk Pomerania,[lower-alpha 4] is largely coextensive with Pomerelia, but slightly narrower, as it does not cover the Chełmno Land (including the Michałów Land).
