Kaliningrad city in Europe

Kaliningrad is the westernmost region of the Russian Federation.

Königsberg (as the city of Kaliningrad was once known) was founded by Teutonic knights in the XIII century. It became one of the cities of the Hanseatic League and was once the capital of Prussia. The philosopher Immanuel Kant spent all his life in the city and died there in 1804.

After the German defeat in 1918, the Polish Corridor of Danzig separated East Prussia and Königsberg from the rest of Germany. Hitler’s desire to reunite them was one of the sparks that lit WWII. The three months campaign by which the Red Army took the region in 1945 was one of the fiercest of the war, with hundreds of thousands of casualties on both sides. The Conference of the Allies, which took place in Berlin in 1945, gave East Prussia to USSR.

Today Kaliningrad is a dynamically developing trade and industrial centre of Russia’s westernmost region. The historical legacy of many centuries, which has garnered interest in the past years, successfully intertwines with signs of the third millennium, creating a unique combination, which attracts guests from all over the world.

The distance to the Russian capitals:

  • 1200 km to Moscow,
  • 1200 km to Saint-Petersburg

The distances to most European capitals are relatively short:

  • 350 km to Vilnius,
  • 400 km to Warsaw,
  • 600 km to Berlin,
  • 650 km to Stockholm,
  • 680 km to Copenhagen.
