  • Excursion to the past Kaliningrad Museum "Fridlandskie Vorota" library named "Belinskiy" on the eve of the women's holiday, organized an excellent tour in Kaliningrad-the "Fridlandskie gate" which got its name after the town of Friedland, as through these gates could leave in the direction of the town of Friedland, current pravdinsk Kaliningrad region. Fridlandskie gate formed part of the fortifications of Königsberg XIX century Museum "Fridlandskie gate" is located in the former city gates of Königsberg. Naturally all Museum Exposition devoted to the former g. Kjonigsbergu-history of our city. The uniqueness of the Museum is that this gate is no longer travel, the arches are patched. We walked around all the halls, accompanied by a consultant examined household items and everyday life of the former kenigsbergcev, it was an impression that we are trapped in the past. Made a great impression on us virtual tour of old Kenigsbergu, collected from old German photos. We are so carefully peered into the faces, clothes, people, houses, saw shops and inscriptions on them. It was this impression that I'm going on this, not familiar to me and want to know more about him, about the life and the life of this city. Perfectly fits the urban buzz of the city and of course knock the hooves, and I waited. and when the same pojavjats ...

  • The Museum is made is not quite a classic, rather a purely contemporary)) he is interactive: get into the corner of the old Königsberg, walk on the pavement, you hear the sounds of the streets 19 century, horses, carriages. It makes sense to book an appointment, and while not particularly high Museum, try not to hurry)

  • Inside is an interesting display of old things. Many household things beginning 19 century. Curious to see. Built in the late 19 century.

  • Nice small museum about local history
  • Interesting and the building, Fridlandskie gate, interesting and Museum located in them. A small Museum (that I usually like even more than the vast and endless museums), tells about the history of the city. Have fun exhibits and a small exhibition. History lovers will go. In the yard there is a old tram mid-20th century. However on the same tram tours of the city (ask at the Museum box office).

  • I live not far from the Museum. Once tried to go there, Wachter (or cashier?) not really wanted to explain how to get to the Museum (!), every word you had to almost pull out force. In General, I'm tired, wife of edgy and we didn't go to this museum. First time this attitude meet in museums.

  • I really liked the Museum! Its definitely worth a visit! Plunge into the wonderful world of pre-war Koenigsberg, liked the idea of a virtual stroll through the streets of the old city! What a pity that much of what the old Königsberg at the moment anymore! Good location, kind and helpful woman, we visited the Museum with a two year old child, they have made every effort to ensure that he was too interesting! Thank you!
