Immanuel Kant's Grave, Kaliningrad
(3.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the main attractions of the city. I recommend to watch this space. A story worth knowing.

  • Modest grave of one of the greatest people in the world/ It is situated at the back of the Kaliningrad Cathedral and very popular place. Worth visiting. 
  • It turns out that this place is visited by almost all tourists arriving in Kaliningrad, to be at the Cathedral and did not look at the burial of this famous old guys-nonsense. Although I am sure many will no longer be able to say what he was so famous for
