  • 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.

  • Kaliningrad-city gates, many of them here, some names are similar, even locals do not distinguish all ☺ so, here, after a visit to the Zoo, we met at the Fridrihsburgskie gate and hit sjuda😆 haven't looked back! We came almost to closure, but still managed to visit most of the exposures. First price: adult 200 rubles, this includes visiting permanent exhibitions and virtual tour of Kjonigsbergu; separately paid for temporary exhibitions and holographic exposure. A little bit about the gate, this is a monument of culture. Gate built in the year 1862. It is through these gates during WWII Soviet troops entered the town after heavy fighting. During the war this gate is not affected, after the war here have placed the vegetable store. Later when cleaning up local ponds here was found many subjects of war, and just everyday little things. It is from this and began to form the Museum Fund. Only in 2008 year Fridlandskie gate became an independent Museum. Now the exposition. Virtual tour: on one wall, and more precisely on the embedded gate opening there photos of old Königsberg end 19-early 20 centuries. In the sounds were the sounds of the city-the laughter of children, the clatter of hooves knock heels and handbags, etc. Slide show done as a route through the city as if you get there! All of this takes about 15 minutes. Now holographic exposure. At first, the fly in the ointment. After the virtual walk we were told to go to the building, the CTD is located in a 3-minute walk from the gate, through 5 minutes there began the last, on this day, the session. The whole crowd went there. We stood there a minute 10-15, froze, while my sister is not led by the hand of the one who will open the building for us. And, as if nothing had happened came in razvalochku. But that session, CTD.

  • 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.
