  • This year the big reconstruction took place there are many new sites to visit. You take offense if you don't visit here. Plan need a whole day to rapidly pass fail)) food better take with you, there's a café is expensive and tasteless. Tea with Ossetian pie you can eat at a café next to the amphibian plane. Prices are moderate.

  • A wonderful Museum and very close to the Hotel IBIS. Free access to the territory. Here you can have a civil, space and military issues. Interesting and on a short walk through the territory and not less interesting visiting ships and a submarine.

  • Amazing exhibits. The submarine is highly recommended to visit.
  • Large and very interesting exposition, definitely a "must visit" place in Kaliningrad
  • Лучший музей города
  • I liked how the old port area of the airport. Several museums. Prices are low, but given the insignificant exposures-noticeably higher than average. Residents of more or less large cities Aquarium it is better not to attend-will be disappointed with the scale and regret the poor rays, including the Aquarium of less than 1 cube of water with a bunch of huge fish too.

  • The Museum is unique. Another such in Russia. Very interesting, informative, impressive! You can tell about this place, but it's better at least once to see it! Above all-the Museum is the perfect place for walking and recreation. At the moment the Museum expands and builds. I hope very much that soon we will see the updated Museum in all its glory! 👍👍👍
