‘Kaliningrad, formerly the German town of Königsberg, is a bit of Europe on the map of Russia, or a bit of Russia on the map of Europe. Even though the old city had beed destroyed and the fairy-tale-like colorful little houses and Königsberg Castle couldn’t be restored, today’s town is still very beautiful. There’s the Cathedral, where Immanuel Kant was buried, the well-preserved parts of Amalienau with its old German villas dating back to the start of the 20th century, the fortification walls around the town’s borders, Russia’s largest organ, a number of Protestant churches, the upside down house, the Ocean Museum, and a large zoo. Kaliningrad Region is also quite fascinating: Curonian Spit (a 98-kilometer-long narrow stretch of land separating the Baltic Sea and the sweet-water Curonian Lagoon, famous for its unique flora and fauna) is an experience not to be missed. You could also visit Svetlogorsk to look for bits of amber and breathe in the fresh sea breeze,’ Ural Airlines say.
