Russia - Kaliningrad Region (Chapter)
This is the Kaliningrad Region chapter from Lonely Planet’s Russia guidebook.
Russia’s smallest territory is both isolated from and intimately attached to the motherland. All the traditions of the parent can be found here, alongside plenty of fine hotels and restaurants, welcoming locals, beautiful countryside, splendid beaches and fascinating historical sights.
- pay your respects at the grave of philosopher Immanuel Kant, then listen to an organ concert in Kaliningrad Cathedral
- splash in the Baltic from the beautiful beach at Yantarny, then visit the local amber mine
- restaurants and accommodation
- soak up the natural beauty of the Kurshskaya Kosa National Park, where the forest dances and the dunes roll on as far as the eye can see
Coverage includes: Kaliningrad, Svetlogorsk, Yantarny, Zelenogradsk, Kurshskaya Kosa and Chernyakhovsk.
