Kaliningrad lies on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea and is the most western region of Russia. Formerly called Koenigsberg, it was the capital of East Prussia and became part of Russia in 1946. Many historical monuments survived both war and the Soviet era. Castles, fortresses and cemeteries dot the landscape. Visit the Amber Museum, Old Town Gates, and the former Luisen Church. Excursions to the resort of Svetlogorsk and to the Curonian Spit are worthwhile. Continental Journeys offers independent tours to Kaliningrad and its neighbors. You can customize any independent tour or we can create a tour that fits your wishes.
