Kaliningrad City


Kaliningrad is a city in Russia, the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the westernmost regional center of the country. Until July 4, 1946, this city was called Konigsberg.


Kaliningrad – Features

The city of Kaliningrad, located about 1,250 km west of Moscow, is the administrative center of the westernmost region of Russia, the only region of the Russian Federation, which is completely separated from the rest of the country by hundreds of kilometers, land borders of two states (Poland, Lithuania), and international sea waters.

Pskov, the nearest regional center of Russia, is 800 km away. At the same time, the distances to a lot of European capitals are relatively small: 350 km to Warsaw and Vilnius, 390 km to Riga, 550 km to Minsk, 600 km to Berlin, 650 km to Stockholm, 680 km to Copenhagen.

Kaliningrad stands on both banks of the Pregolya River, not far from the Kaliningrad Bay located in the southeastern Baltic Sea. This is the largest city in the North-West Federal District of Russia after St. Petersburg, the third largest city (after Riga and Vilnius) in the Baltic states.

The climate of the city is transitional from maritime to continental. Thanks to the influence of the Gulf Stream, winters are warmer than in the mainland of Eurasia. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, summer in Kaliningrad is moderately cool and begins, on average, on June 11. The average temperature in January is minus 1.5 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 18.1 degrees Celsius.

Kaliningrad is the most important transport hub in the region because it is the only non-freezing Russian port in the Baltic Sea. Khrabrovo International Airport offers regular flights to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Riga, Minsk, Warsaw. Regular bus routes connect Kaliningrad with Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany.

The Pregolya River divides Kaliningrad into four parts. There are eight bridges across it. Seven bridges existed in Konigsberg in the 16th – 20th centuries. The mutual arrangement of these bridges prompted mathematician Leonhard Euler to think about it, which led to the emergence of graph theory. The mathematical problem known as the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg is also related to these bridges.

Tourism is one of the priorities for the development of the city. Most of the cultural and historical sites, museums, architectural monuments, and entertainment complexes of Kaliningrad Oblast are located here. In total, there are 536 cultural heritage sites. In Kaliningrad, you can also find a unique phenomenon for Russia – Orthodox churches located in old German churches.

Among foreign tourists visiting Kaliningrad Oblast, tourists from Germany make up the bulk, which is approximately equal to the combined presence of all tourists from other countries. In Kaliningrad, there are more than 100 hotels of various categories. Kaliningrad hotels are among the best in Russia.

With rare exceptions, almost no pre-war buildings have been preserved in the city center. The surviving German buildings are located closer to the outskirts. In the last third of the 20th century, the attitude towards German architecture began to change, some of the German buildings that had been preserved until that time were restored.
