Learn more about this fortress town and get a sense of how it looked at the end of the 19th century on your visit to Friedland Gates Museum. Located within one of the surviving gates of Konigsberg, which were constructed in 1862, the museum specializes in history and regional studies, featuring an assortment of everyday items that used to belong to the citizens of the town around the turn of the 20th century. The exhibits are grouped into "Fortress City" and "Garden City" themes. Visit "Virtual Walks Across the Old Konigsberg," where you'll learn about the country’s history, and European history as well. The introductory film explains some of the background of the city and the development of its fortresses. While the film is in Russian, an English information sheet is available upon request.

    Fridlanskie gate we visited first. Liked everything in the measure restored. Interesting to see the Museum of old appliances. Knight costumes and plate (it is a pity that they are not old and reconstruction). Knight's helmet did not wish to stand exactly on its head and as jumping a horse with this design?)). Through the Museum, the bunker had to run jogging in complete darkness, the system has not worked. We know about it, thought it must be so (to more terrifying)

    The Museum is very clean, interesting. Friendly and helpful staff. Although, it seems to me, would be more interesting to foreigners. While seeing the show a wonderful film. There are some technical issues, but they are insignificant. Come!

    On his head reached the gates of the Centre on foot from Frýdlant. And in road repairs ... In General, the path is already exhausted us, so to fully enjoy the exposure we would hardly have been able to ... That's just it would than enjoy. The luck came to the Chronicle's picture frame demo Königsberg pre-war years. And then just spread out on the walls of the exhibits, apparently, the beginning of the 20th century. In a mandatory visit is not sure.

    Fake hospitality for a month and a half whole Kaliningrad, crisscrossed this always with your child in the stroller, but the Museum could not get, because "you cannot with a sidecar". It was suggested to leave the stroller (where sleeping child) in the lobby. On the wall hung a diploma for hospitality (I, II, III). Objective reasons the ban was not here (for example, stairs without ramps): even in the complete absence of Water accessible Museum Wednesday (staircase) has not stopped. Even the State Hermitage (St. Petersburg) with pushchair access to the can (and should). Mount Museum workers "Frýdlant gate" forgotten why and for whom they work. We especially planned this day for visits to the Museum, it's opening day of the new exhibitions, and came from the other end of the city, despite the pouring rain. This vreditelskoe attitude of the Museum to the case evokes pity. Is anyone's guess, as the Museum has received awards for its hospitality.

    A small museum, but there is something to see. Constantly show small movies about Kaliningrad. Interactive room with appliances and similar things. All of them can touch, poke, twist.
