Don't go there: 7 places in Kaliningrad that you shouldn't waste your time and money on

2. Ruins of Königsberg Castle
All that remains of the impregnable citadel of the Teutonic Order is a pile of bricks and fragments of the foundation. It’s worth going there only for the guide’s fascinating stories about the history of Königsberg – exactly what to see especially and nothing to see. And if organized excursions are not included in your plans, you can look there only in passing – or not waste time at all.
3. Cathedral of Christ the Savior
The youngest temple in the city, erected in 2006, is also listed as a mandatory item in the lists of its attractions. The architecture of the building vaguely resembles the style of the Vladimir-Suzdal School of the 12th-14th centuries, but upon closer examination, it is a typical church new building: bulky and pompous, for the last 15 years such buildings have been erected in every regional center of Russia.

four. Concert Hall “House of Arts”
Another “hello” from the Soviet era. There are so many such structures all over the country, so it’s hardly worth spending time on visiting it. It is recommended to tourists only because there used to be a church on this place, where Immanuel Kant was baptized. But not even a brick is left of it, which means that we will again have to be content with the guide's stories. ru/sized/f550x700/8l/i8/8li87wwyb6skk4cw0ccoc080w.png” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
