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.

  • There is hardly a person who haven't heard about Immanuile Kante. If you are not a connoisseur of philosophy and philosophers, surely read Bulgakov's "master and Margarita"-there's a very interesting yet Kant: "... He absolutely destroyed all five evidence (the existence of God), and then, as if in mockery of himself, built his own sixth proof! "Tomb (Cenotaph) stands as if in the midst of the Hall, the architecture of quiet and at the same time, how would sure, without pretensions and excesses. The Cathedral, the last shelter of Kant, dominates the island, looks like it's all really very philosophical, measured and not at all sad. Who is going to visit Kaliningrad-Kant, there some its peculiar mood. Strange to put an "assessment" of such attractions as someone's grave.

  • Look exactly at the inscription, very strange occupation, unless you are a fan of specifically Kant)) and so: go see the Cathedral and walk around the island, then Yes, why not for the sake of look ... If you collect these checkboxes, of course)

  • 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.

  • Good that the tomb is preserved. Not photographed. Considered it wrong.
