Oh my God, it finally happened. After all these years of doubts we made it to Russia. To me, it always seemed so far away, so difficult to reach. However, one gets tired of Europe one day and then you start looking for something new. That’s how I got to Russia. My journey begins with a very small region of Kaliningrad, located somewhere between Lithuania and Poland. Technically, it’s not even Russia, it’s just a tiny island surrounded by the Baltic Sea and the Baltic states. My worst concern about Kaliningrad was that it would be impossible to find ...

I’ve got no idea why but when my friend Jessy asked me whether I wanted to go with her to Russia, I said yes. It’s not that I was afraid or anything, I mean you have to think a bit before giving an answer to such a question. But whatever, I agreed, we packed our things, booked a flight, and set off. I think, one of the reasons behind my decision was my deepest desire to see the sea. Of course, we have see as well, but I just wanted to meet something different. I guess that’s my trouble: always ...

Another business trip. You get tired at times. You get tired even more when they say it’s gonna be Russia. You know, it’s really nice to say that “I love meeting new people and seeing new faces everyday” but honestly, I just had enough. So, when I landed at Khrabrovo airport in Kaliningrad, I was really angry. First of all, I didn’t really like the name of the airport – if you can’t pronounce it, why should you bother to go there at all? Moreover, the airport itself looks really ‘great’ – like somebody has bombed it just before we ...

I’ve been always wondering where people in Kaliningrad spend their weekends. It always seemed to me that we don’t have any good place to go to and spend the whole day there. I mean, we have parks and everything but their main audience is still children. There used to be some really exciting attractions but because they were too old, they were simply dismantled. So, we had to start looking for something new and very soon I managed to find a place that could offer a lot of opportunities for entertainment. Actually, it is not surprising because the place was ...

The first and only picture of my family including my aunt and uncle and their children was taken at the Kaliningrad zoo many years ago. It’s not surprising since I think in those times the zoo was the only place where you could go together with all your relatives and have the whole day for yourself. The zoo is very old; I think it was opened at the end of the XIX century when Kaliningrad still was a German town. Of course, it has seen both good times and bad times: I remember those days when the houses were so ...

Despite being quite a small city, Kaliningrad still has a variety of places for every person. The best thing is that if you want to eat out, the choice is just supreme. I’ll tell you about some of my favourite places. One of discoveries of this season for me was Kropotkin beer house. I can’t say that I like beer, I don’t drink it actually but the place itself is very nice. They serve almost everything, different beer snacks, pasta, pizzas – I never get tired of the variety they offer. The inside part is very interesting: the walls are ...

The Kaliningrad region of Russia is always compared to an island surrounded by foreign countries and the sea. It is really so, and that’s why sometimes it seems a bit difficult to live on an island: you can’t just go anywhere you like any time you like since you are simply confined to a very close area. Therefore, I think it is only natural that we love the sea so much – this vast unlimited body of water. Personally, I love being at the sea but my absolute favorite is the Curonian Spit, and to be even more precise – ...

The Kaliningrad region is usually associated with the Baltic Sea. The sea used to provide food for different people who inhabited its coasts many centuries ago; Kaliningrad itself used to be a major fishing region supplying the whole country with various fish products. Those times might be gone forever but the sea still remains an important part of the region attracting a lot of visitors every year. If you want to have a couple of peaceful days, you should definitely go to the Curonian Spit – a long thin strip of land protruding long into the sea. It is a ...

When you come to Kaliningrad, you may be overwhelmed with a variety of things to see, shops to go to, places of interest to visit, and you will definitely want to take a break from this vibrant town life. Luckily, Kaliningrad has a lot of parks which are being constantly renovated and redecorated so that every year there will be something new to admire. Kaliningrad used to be one of the greenest cities in Russia. Of course, time and modern life have taken their toll on the city but it is still called a city of gardens. And there is ...

Kaliningrad – the westernmost city in the Russian Federation – offers a lot to its visitor. Bear in mind that Kaliningrad used to be a German city one day and though it had been badly damaged during the II World War, some of its former glory is still visible. If you arrive by train, the first thing you see as you go out of the railway station is the Brandenburger Tor – one of the many gates Kaliningrad managed to preserve. It is the only gate which is still used for transport, other gates are simply kept as museums: Königstor ...
