Immanuel Kant's Grave, Kaliningrad

(3.8/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • Frankly, in everyday life to philosophy. So much so that campus course philosophy and part of this course, coupled with the name of Kant, slightly podzabylis'. However, this does not apply to the Immanuilu Kant as a historical figure. The famous personality ... For this reason, always during a visit to the Cathedral, don't forget to take a look at it, i. Kant, ... Probably like all the tourists ...

  • Interesting place. Often there can be seen the wedding procession. In the Cathedral in a certain time allowed to listen to the body.
