Where to eat

Kaliningrad offers a great number of

restaurants and eateries for you to

choose to try something according to

your taste, desire or today’s mood. In

Kaliningrad, you will fi nd restaurants,

cafés, pubs and bars, sushi and grillbars,

Croissant-café and Königsbäcker

– local coffee shop chains.

Recent years have seen a tremendous

growth in opportunity for trying

something brand new in gastronomy.

Gastrobars, burger bars, cafes and

healthy diet pastry shops have opened.

There are two cafés of Pan-Asiatic

cuisine in the city – there you won’t

fi nd sushi or sashimi, but you will have

a chance to try noodles with various

accompaniments, traditional Asian

salads and steam-cooked patties.

Lovers of Italian cuisine can feel free

here – in the downtown of Kaliningrad

you will fi nd plenty of eateries to

enjoy pizza, lasagnas, pasta and other

Mediterranean dishes. For those who

love to have a cup of morning coffee

outdoors, many cafés offer specialized

breakfasts from 08:00 till 12:00, as well

as business lunches for those who would

like to spend their lunch break with

colleagues or business partners. Pinpots

are suggested to visit breweries

where various types of foamy drink

are brewed and served. Wine rooms

and wine bars of Kaliningrad welcome

experts in sparkling, red, white, new and

premium wines. Traditional Kaliningrad

snacks worth a special mention include

various types of smoked fish, eel kebab,

the famous Köenigsberger Klopses

and meatballs of traditional regional

cuisine. When you travel to Kaliningrad,

pay special attention to sweets which

are not so common in Russia, such as

local marzipans and a wide range of

chocolate from the neighboring Baltic

countries.

m (near the Cape of Bulvikis, to the

north of Nida, Lithuania), with a total

length of 98 km. Since 1987, the

Curonian Spit has been considered

a national park and, since 2000, it

has been on the UNESCO’s World

Rural Tourism

Lots of us get tired of living in the

city, and we are tempted by the

calm and remote places where we

can enjoy the silence of the wood,

an orchard fragrance, the smell of

wild flowers and a new-mown grass,

to listen to the birds’ singing, to

have a glass of new drawn milk and

to entirely dissolve into calm rural

living. The direction you choose to

go is not that important, everywhere

you will meet hospitable owners of

estates, guest houses, farms and

country farms. Traditional farmer’s

food and calm rural life will leave

unforgettable impressions from

your holiday or from a weekend trip.

You shouldn’t worry about being

bored, despite the slow pace of local

life. You can enjoy horse riding and

bicycle rides, try out haymaking

and animal feeding, fi shing, hunting,

walking, visit a bath and spend cozy

evenings next to a fi replace. Some of

the guest houses offer scenic river

walks, raſting and boat rental.

Sporting Activities

Those who want to have active

holidays during the summer can

enjoy a lot of water sports. These

those who spend much time in the

city, we recommend to remember

about an active lifestyle and join

the locals for a traditional evening

bicycle rides along picturesque,

well-developed embankments of

the city lakes and in the green park

area. If you are fond of horse riding,

you can benefit from it in several

places of the region. You can choose

a ride together with a professional

instructor, or alone if you are an

experienced horse rider. Moreover,

in Kaliningrad you have a wonderful

opportunity to find yourself between

heaven and earth – to make a

parachute jump or to do some flying

with a paraplane.

Must do’s

When in Kaliningrad

don’t forget to:

..... visit Cathedral. This is the

building where hollowness and

magic, ancient history of the region,

organ music, ghosts of one of three

cities of ancient Koenigsberg, and a

sarcophagus of the great philosopher

Immanuel Kant all come together.

Directly opposite to a memorial portico

there stands a statue of Duke Albrecht

of Bradenburg, the last Grand Master

of the Teutonic Order. It was him, who

founded the university where Immanuel

Kant studied and later worked

..... take a stroll among the

old townhouse areas on

the streets of Chapaev, Pugachyov,

Telman and Kutuzov. Sleepy streets

abundant in greenery, grecaeful

houses built in various architectural

styles, old cobble stone paving

paving – all this will let you feel

the magnifi cent atmosphere of

Kaliningrad, where history closely

intertwines with modernity.

...to drop into one of the

castles: Waldau, Shaaken,

Georgenburg or any other. They are in

different states of physical condition,

but sometimes a ruin on its own

speaks more about its time than a

restored castle.

... take a ride to the sea coast in

the evening. The running of the

day, travelling of the sun, shimmering

sea waves and clear skies, and this

unique state of mind – all these things

are the essential part of old local

tradition for saying farewell to the sun.

....choose an amber souvenir for

yourself. A piece of jewellery or

just a small piece of amber (that you

found on the sea shore aſter a storm) –

this would be the best lucky charm you

can have or a thing to muse over for

the millions of years which had frozen

in this tiny piece of amber.

... take with you two or three

miniature figures made of

local marzipan. You can put them on

display on a shelf and appreciate their

sculptural work; or you can have them

with your cup of tea and bring back

your memories of this place.

Surroundings

Sovetsk (formerly Tilsit)

is a city rich with history. That is

actually the place where the peace

treaty between Alexander I and

Napoleon was signed in 1807. Tilsit

was first mentioned in the 13th

century. One of the town’s places

of interest is Queen Louise Bridge

which at the same time performs

the function of car border crossing

point between Russia and Lithuania

over the Neman river. Central

Pobedy Street, which leads to the

bridge, reminds you of a narrow

European town street. City park is

a wonderful place for relaxation. It

is exactly here that one of the main

symbols of the city – a sculpture

of Queen Louise installed in 1900

– was situated before WWII. The

sculpture was reconstructed in

2014 thanks to the efforts of local

authorities and residents. Looking

at old houses covered with red tiles

and decorated with facade molding

you feel like it is many centuries

ago. We recommend you to visit the

building of the former city Royal

gymnasium, the Lithuanian church, a

mill pond with an arboretum, as well

as a city museum displaying a lot of

interesting exhibits.

Tchernyakhovsk

(formerly Insterburg)

The history of the town of

Tchernyakhovsk begins with the

construction of the Order Castle

in 1336. The Knightly House was

repeatedly visited and became the

residence of well known persons:

the Duke of Derby; Henry the IV,

King of England (in 1390); George

Friedrich, margrave (in 1583);

Johann Sigismund, Prince-Elector

(in 1612); Maria Eleonora, Queen of

Sweden (in 1643), and other historic

fi gures. Together with the castle,

the town began to grow – and it won

the glory of being a horse Mecca

of Europe, as a result of which

Tchernyakhovsk revived the tradition

of organizing horse tournaments.

In 1936, East Prussia saw the fi rst

trolley-bus. Besides, a zipper was

invented here. The town has retained

its unique landscape and atmosphere

to this day. Walking along the streets

of Tchernyakhovsk you will fi nd a

magnifi cent equestrian sculpture

of a famous Russian commander of

Napoleonic wars Barclay de Tolly as

well as a monument to twice Hero of

the Soviet Union, Army General

I.D. Tchernyakhovsky, who

commanded the 3rd Belorussian

Front during the East Prussian

offensive operation of 1944-1945 and

in whose honor the city was renamed.

recently become a popular place

for so-called wild tourism. Apart

from naval traditions, this city is

usually associated fi rst of all with

monuments to Peter The Great and

Elizabeth of Russia, Empress. We

should also mention the Church of

St. Alexander Nevsky, St. George’s

Pissa river, then it was transferred to

the Kaliningrad zoo and, aſter that,

was returned to the city and placed

in the square. The locals are also

proud of the historical fresco «King

Friedrich meets emigrants who are

leaving Salzburg to settle in Prussia»,

which was completely restored by

2008. This fresco can be seen today

in the concert hall of the College of

Agricultural Technologies and Nature

Management. The outstanding event

in the town’s history is the Battle

of Gumbinnen, which is one of fi rst

large battles at the eastern front

of the First World War (20 August

1914). The town loudly celebrated the

100th Anniversary of the Battle of

Gumbinnen, which was successful for

the Russian Imperial Army. Modern

town. It is the seat for the largest

in Russia private radio electronics

innovation cluster «Technopolis

GS». We also recommend you to
