- KONIGSBERG - KROLEWIEC -

Do not expect Kaliningrad to be the beautiest place on the Earth. It is definitely not. You will also return disappointed if seeing "Konigsberg" was the purpose of your trip. There is hardly anything left. But you can surely spend some good time in Kaliningrad learning about that very specific place and people who live there.

    Do not forget to book tickets on before hand...when I arrived at noon with two friends it appeared to be that the museum was sold out for one day

    Great accommodation and transportation tips! Not beautiful? Very interesting area for me, anyway! Did they change anything there? What about people living there? Safety? Haha, sorry, too many questions I am going to ask myself next week :-)

    there is in fact more left from before WW2 than in many other German cities but today's state is, despite of recent German and EU support - worse than any place in Germany (East or West) - simply the German-Russian civilisatory difference.

    Marcin! Very refreshing account of visit to the land of the old Borussians. I'm planning to go at some time: Diolch

    Good to see more about this place. Great tips that I will remember when I go back, either in 2004 or 2005. Must disagree with the "The old city exists in words, words are the only things left". There's more to a city than just the centre, thankfully.

    Such monster-buildings of the House of Soviets are very typical for all cities of the former Soviet Union. Brrr....
