Soviet Kaliningrad: Kaliningrad from the Soviet past…

House of Soviets

Soviet Kaliningrad

A city totally closed for foreigners. A city with the largest in the USSR fishing fleet, and one of the most numerous command weapons and troops. Strangely enough, but it is not easy to separate it from the present-time post-communist Kaliningrad, which, and it adds even more to the ambiguity of the city, still has Koenigsberg inseparably interweaved in its fabric. It reminds of a photography collage, where bits and pieces put together sometimes have nothing in common. We will be visiting more or less the same sights as others do on their sightseeing tour, but our focus will be on the city from 1946 to 1991.

- House of Soviets, History and Art Museum, Obelisk with 4 orders at the entrance to the Sea Fishing Port, Mosaic at Kievskaya St., Sovetskaya stolovaya (for lunch break), South Station: railway museum, RSFSR coat of arms, Kalinin, Lenin, Flee market, World Ocean Museum (including the Memorial to Pioneers of the Fishing Fleet), Great Patriotic War memorials (1200)
