What awaits you

Zelenopole - Borchersdorf: have time to see a miracle In a German settlement, on the walls of the church, a rare work of art has been preserved - a mosaic panel using the smalt technique with an allegorical image of a sower. Unfortunately, it is still not protected from the influence of nature and is located in the open air on the wall of the crumbling church. That is why it is imperative to look at this miracle … until it fades into oblivion

Pravdinsk - Friedland: the highest spire in the region Even at the entrance to the city, you will see its main attraction - the church of St. George with the highest spire in the Kaliningrad region. In terms of its size, the building is one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in East Prussia. In general, for the beautiful spiers it is not necessary to go to English Salisbury - there are no less impressive here, on the former Prussian land of Notangia

Zheleznodorozhny - Gerdauen: an old Prussian must-see The next item on the program is a settlement that was not badly damaged during World War II, but fell into decay under Soviet and Russian rule. However, quite recently, in 2019, it was reconstructed - and now you can see several dozen buildings in their former, pre-war form

Ozerki - Georgenfeld: a paradise for connoisseurs of fundamental structures Here is the deepest (in the Russian part) gateway of a unique creation of the Prussian-German engineering genius - the Mazury Canal. This is also the unfinished waterway, which was supposed to connect the Great Mazury Lakes (now the territory of Poland) with the Kaliningrad Bay

Friendship - Allenburg: "fortress on the mountain" In the city, founded in the middle of the 13th century, you will hear about the history of resistance to the empire of the Crusaders and the increased attention to the city of Russian troops. But the main thing for which we will come here is a church of rare beauty, founded at the beginning of the 15th century and not much damaged during the Second World War (unless someone “privatized” the bells)

Bolshaya Polyana - Allendorf - Paterswalde: "nature reserve" The settlement had many names. You will find out what interesting things happened here since the founding of the village in the middle of the 14th century by the Master of the Teutonic Order. Explore one of the most beautiful surviving Lutheran churches And you will see a miraculously survived Prussian monument to the soldiers who died during the First World War

Znamensk - Velau: the one that is inscribed in the Prussian chronicle in gold letters Next, you will visit a historically significant city, where you signed a treatise on the severance of vassal relations with Poland, giving Prussia official independence. Learn about the founder of modern mathematics, who was born here. And let's also talk about the connection of the city with pagan roots and its mystical location

Gvardeysk - Tapiau: good old Europe It is here that they usually frantically look for a passport in their pocket, as we are sure that we have already crossed the border - so much the city center resembles the traditional landscapes of the Old West. You will see the church, the reconstructed Victory Square and the facades of buildings. Find out what makes the local military monument unique. And the preserved castle (which only a few towns in the region can boast of) will be a separate story.
