The dissonance of combinations of German-Soviet architecture,
a measured rhythm of life, active teenagers and cultural development, if we describe Kaliningrad in a nutshell.
Very lively city with a lot of young people who are almost everywhere. They play basketball, ride bicycles, go to the cinema, play the guitar in public gardens and seem to have not use a mobile phones at all.
Kaliningrad is the capital of the Russian province of the same name, sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic Coast. Dubbed Königsberg during centuries of Prussian rule, the city was largely reconstructed after WWII. Traces of its German heritage can be seen in the surviving Brandenburg Gate and the riverside Fishing Village, a dining and shopping destination with re-created medieval-style buildings.
