  • Super hologram film.
  • Nice small museum about local history
  • In the halls of the Museum recreated the atmosphere of the town 15 century-20 century. A lot of interesting things, multimedia program "Vertualnye walk through the streets of Königsberg" and interactive exhibition complexes. From September to April with 10:00 to 18:00; May-August 10:00 -19:00; the first Friday of the month-sanitary day. Königsberg was once completely surrounded by defensive walls. Entrance to the city was carried out only through the gate. Before our time survived only seven of them, in its architecture, they resemble castles. Somewhere in Kaliningrad on the wall look. Some gates are museums with various exhibits and tours. Me, for example, are interested in sightseeing tram tour, organized by the Museum of the "Fridlandskie gate". A trip through the city centre on a vintage tram 1963 year. Ticket price-250 rubles, departure on Saturday in 12-00 from South Station. Tickets should be purchased in advance at the Museum box office, where gates and Fridlandskie are (St. dzerzhinskogo, 30). Of course, there are many various excursions and within the gates.

  • A good Museum of folk architecture and life of pre-war Koenigsberg. Periodically in 2 room show 10-minute film (indeed, slideshow with captions) of Königsberg in the late 19th-early 20th century. In the courtyard of the Museum on the eternal red currant worth tram, which through these Gates once passed. In General, it is worth to look, while we waited for more. With astonishment and laughter about toilets found a small thematic exhibit on the occurrence and development of the sewerage system in Europe, Russia and in the world))) in addition, in a room with a small exhibition of weapons and armor has the ability to get dressed in Knight and his lady and Photo taken (unfortunately, we ran out of time). Near the cash register, as usual, a small gift shop. We have donated the Museum spent 1.5 hours))
