Amber City

A city of science and philosophy, cosmopolitan Kaliningrad once served as a cultural hub of Germany, Poland, and Lithuania. Geographically separated from the rest of Russia, this thriving city remains a distinct world of its own, its roots dating back to the original settlement by the Teutonic Knights, a German military order. Known as Konigsberg from the 13th century onward, the town eventually became the capital of Prussia. Forcibly stripped of its German identity and given a more Russian-sounding name after World War II, the city served as a militarized zone during the Soviet era. Today, Kaliningrad features a blend of medieval and Soviet architecture, its appearance accented by verdant parks and iconic city gates.
