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.

  • Must-visit place. To touch the epoch.
  • 👍
  • The Tomb itself is no notable and will be of interest only to fans of Kant. But since it is in the center of the city, the surrounding area is quite beautiful, good walk. A popular tourist attraction.
