Culture of Kaliningrad. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Kaliningrad Kaliningrad has many attractions that must be seen. One of the most unusual attractions is the sculpture of fighting bison. The city was presented by the Prussian Ministry of Culture, and the author of this unique work is August Gaul. Although the "Fighting Bison" is the official name of the sculpture, locals call it "Prosecutor and Defender", since in 1914, alongside it were built the buildings of two courts - land and administrative.

The Museum of the World Ocean is the first comprehensive museum in the territory of Russia in which expositions dedicated not only to marine flora and fauna, but also to navigation, as well as hydrology, are collected. The museum has an ecological station and a marine library. Together with the museum they make up a unique scientific and cultural center across the country. On the street "Bogdana Khmelnytsky" there is an impressive neo-Gothic building, whose high lancet tower is visible from afar. This is the Catholic church of the Holy Family. A beautiful Lutheran church is one of the most spectacular architectural landmarks of the city.
An immortal symbol of Kaliningrad and a landmark known far beyond the borders of the country is the Amber Museum. It is located in the central area of the city, on the shore of the upper lake. Previously, there was a tower of the Don, named after the distinguished general-field marshal who participated in the war against Napoleonic France. The most cheerful monument of the city is dedicated to Baron Munchausen and is located in the central park, next to the majestic Queen Louise church. This sculpture was given to Kaliningrad by the German city of Bodenveden, which is considered the birthplace of Baron Munchausen. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Kaliningrad is often called the "gate city"; there are really a lot of them here. At the Marshal Vasilevsky Square, not far from the Amber Museum, there is the Rossgarten Gate, which received its name in honor of one of the Konigsberg suburbs. Earlier, the gate served as a point for checking documents and collecting tax from visitors, and now there is a restaurant with a melodic name "Sun Stone". "The Ausfal Gate" is located at the intersection of the Guards and Moscow avenues, directly opposite the bastion "Astronomical". These gates are very old and were built in 1626. In the mid-19th century fortifications were modernized, and as a result, the gates were much lower than the level of fortifications. Later the gates were decided to be converted into a tunnel, today it passes under the ramparts.
