ROYAL HOLIDAY IN KALININGRAD
Kaliningrad is the westernmost regional center of Russia, which has always been considered a special and romantic city in Russia. In 1255, the Teutonic Knights founded a fortress on the site of the Prussian settlement and gave it the name Koenigsberg ("Royal Mountain"). Already in 1525, Koenigsberg became the capital of Prussia, a city of philosophers, free creators and artisans. After World War II, Koenigsberg was transferred to the Soviet Union and received its current name. Now in the guise of the city you can see memories of the era of chivalry, and reminders of the battles of the Second World War, and traces of the Soviet era.
