  • Perhaps the main attraction of the city. The bridge is named in honor of the wife of King Frederick, its white marble statue (new) stands in the Park of Sovetsk. It is not just the bridge is State border between Russia and Lithuania. So without passports and Schengen visas there go there. While on it, but the trucks drive to build a new bridge, so it that soon old historical bridge will experience less stress mean his life will last. photos of the bridge can only be done from the shore. But he is good at any time of the year.

  • Nice bridge, I like to pass it quick, but sometimes have to wait till Russian border guard 💂 make their work. Once spent 8 hours in the car on the bridge. FFS.
  • Crossing by land route from Lithuania into the Russian exclave Kaliningrad (Königsberg) this former Prussian border gate in the East of the German Empire ("Reichsgrenze") is an outstanding piece of historic heritage. Before 1945 one had to cross eastwards in order to get into Russia. Since 1991, the collapse of the Soviet Union, travelers have to cross westwards in order to visit Russia
