What awaits you
From Koenigsberg … 100 photographs of old Königsberg from my album will help you feel like you are on the streets of this beautiful city, and my story will complement your impressions
We will walk along the Kneiphof island - aka Kant's island - and talk about the life of a philosopher. We will visit the ruins of the Royal Castle. Here you will understand how the medieval city was organized and imagine its life. I will reveal the secrets of the streets: what they were called in the past, what has been preserved since ancient times. I'll tell you about old pre-war restaurants and a fine local wine.
The times of the rise and fall of Koenigsberg will appear before you. Together we will discuss the reasons for the oblivion of the German city and answer the question "Why is the airport named after Elizaveta Petrovna and what did Suvorov do here?" And we will also plunge into the noisy noisy atmosphere of the Eastern Fair on the Hansa Platz.
Before Kaliningrad We will move away from the assessment “Königsberg is good, Kaliningrad is bad” and will talk about the recent history of the city: about the period of World War II and the first settlers (I will share the memories of these people taken from the archives). At the House of Soviets, you will hear the history of its construction and freezing, plans for the development of the territory of the former castle. Then you will be surprised at the reconstruction of Khrushchevs on the central street of the city. And buy some stylish souvenirs
City today On Victory Square, you will see the renovated Cathedral of Christ the Savior and find out where the relic is kept - the Memel Suvorov iconostasis. I will also show you our cute homlins - their figurines have appeared quite recently, but have already won the love of residents and guests of the city. In addition, I will advise where else to go in the region, where in Kaliningrad there is delicious food, drink beer, attend concerts and performances.
