Kaliningrad is the capital of the Russian province “Kaliningrad”, logated between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic Coast. Dubbed Königsberg during centuries of Prussian rule, the city was largely reconstructed after WWII. The region was part of Germany until annexation by the USSR following World War II. Today 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. Kaliningrad (situated 1250 kilometers west of Moscow, in the gateway to Europe) is still of great strategic importance to Moscow. It houses the Russian Baltic Fleet at the port of Baltiysk and is the country’s only ice-free European port. In short annexation by the Soviet Unioun – and the USSR’s subsequent collapse – transformed the region, leaving it between two worlds: politically Russian, but geographically – and historically – European. Over the course of a year, the temperature typically varies from -5°C to 23°C and is rarely below-15°C or above 28°C.
