Immanuel Kant's Grave, Kaliningrad

4.2
Read the inscription on Immanuel Kant's Grave and learn which two things never ceased to occupy the philosopher's mind. The memorial to the great philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment is one of the few historical places from the German era that survived when the Soviets took over the city, thanks to an open letter written by an anonymous person. The letter, which cited Engels' writings to prove that Kant was important for communist ideology, saved not only the grave but also the ruins of the nearby cathedral. Kant was originally buried within the cathedral; the mausoleum was created in 1924.

  • The grave of the great philosopher is a great particularly sober monument next to the Cathedral and not very interesting if not for his symbolic side.

  • It is the burial place of the famous German philosopher, who lived and worked in Königsberg (Kaliningrad name in Prussian times) at the end of XVII-early XVIII century. the grave is located near the walls of the Cathedral.

  • For work was in Kaliningrad and ran. Near the Cathedral rests. Suddenly, if you don't remember that East Prussia has always been under the Germans.

  • Grave of philosopher Immanuel Kant is located in the North-East corner of the Cathedral from the outside. After the death of the ashes was awarded the honour of being buried in the professor's crypt, primykavshem to the Cathedral on the north side. In the year 1809 the vault because of its dilapidated state was demolished and in its place built the Gallery, which was called "the Stoa Kantiana" and lasted until the year 1880. In the year 1924 by architect Friedrich Lars Immanuel Kant Memorial was restored and became a modern look. After the bombing of Königsberg by the British in August 1944 and April 1945 battles year year of the whole complex of the Cathedral only Kant's tomb is preserved in a satisfactory condition, everything else around has been transformed into ruins.

  • Those who are familiar with the philosophy of course will be interested to visit this place, I certainly do not think that the Tomb itself is a tourist attraction, but still here lies one of the greatest philosophers. by the way here he was reburied, and the entire island became known as Kant Island)
