Konigsberg Cathedral, Kaliningrad

Pay your respects to a famous German philosopher and admire an excellent example of brick Gothic architectural style at Konigsberg Cathedral. Built in 1933 while the city was under German rule as the capital of East Prussia, the structure showcases murals, wooden carvings, and monuments from different artistic movements over several centuries. Enter to see a number of medieval, Renaissance, and late Gothic works of art, as well as the tomb of famous philosopher Immanuel Kant. Although the church was damaged during World War II, it was restored in the 1990s.

  • It's a museum and not a church. There is a very big and beautiful pipe organ, that's something to see but nothing much. It's more like a place for concerts.
  • The museum is built on three floors with E Kant is the central figure. The Russian/German historians did a great job collecting, restoring and displaying a pig collection of artifacts from that period(coins, buttons, keys and more).
  • Very nice 30 minutes long performance on one of the biggest organs in Europe.
  • Do check out the 2 pm organ concert. The tomb of Immanuel Kant is also a must visit. The location with the river view is awesome.
  • Very beautiful place. Concert was really good
