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. When using our Russia trip generator, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
