Immanuel Kant's Tomb, Kaliningrad

Monument
Read the inscription on Immanuel Kant's Tomb 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 tomb of Immanuel Kant is a beautiful Memorial, built on the site of the burial of the remains of this great German philosopher. The tomb is located near the North wall of the Cathedral. Until 1924 the year above the grave of Kant was a small chapel, but in honor of the bicentenary of the birth of the philosopher it replaced a more solemn Memorial. The tomb of Kant is a standing on a pedestal a massive sarcophagus made of dark granite and surrounded by a stone Colonnade. On the wall of the Cathedral enshrines metal plate on which are engraved the years of life of the philosopher. Recommend to visit this place.

  • Philosopher Kant was the last who was buried in the crypt of the Cathedral of Professorial. To the 200 anniversary of Kant, and it was in the year 1924, over the grave of philosopher instead of the old chapel was erected the structure that we see now. Inside Colonnade stands a stone coffin, but the remains of the Kant buried deeper. Interesting is the fact that it is the tomb of a famous scientist and philosopher prevented the Soviet authorities demolished the Cathedral!

  • Of course it's probably fun, go to the grave ...:) But here's how would Kant! Burial of executed at one of the walls of the Cathedral on the island. Fenced high iron fence, through which everything in sight. The main thing that was for us, the situation around are not sad, not a cemetery. Simply everything. Without too much pathos and tragedy. Remember: everything goes, and this ...:) Opposite the tomb of Kant-a monument to another figure. Usually memorable place, well executed, by the way!

  • 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)

  • After a tour of the temple is worth the walk up to the grave of the philosopher Kant Immanuili, then will not raise questions of who it is, why and how. Represents a a stone square pillars, otgorozhknna forged fence on the wall text name and date.
