The emergence of the Baltic Sea cemented the Scandinavian ice sheet. The sea began to form at the end of the Vistula glaciations when melt water from the glacier began withdrawing accumulate on today Gdańsk Bay and expanding, with time its surface. Around 10,200 years ago, there was a freshwater lake ice is also supplied with water running off lying to the south. After this period, the rapid warming, which caused a rise in the water level and connected to the waters of the North Sea today. Oldie sea arose, also called the mussel living in it. As a result of the disappearance of the ice caps caused by climate warming, followed the slow rise of Scandinavia. The Baltic Sea is one of the youngest seas in the catchment area of the Atlantic Ocean. Created 12,5-13 thousand. years ago, after the last glaciation. Today the Baltic Sea, such as we see it, is the result of changes occurring with time approx. 2.5 thousand. years ago. It is very specific, unique sea in the world.
