Architecture of Soviet Kaliningrad

Posted on May 14, 2012 by team


Soviet Kaliningrad was pretty much different from Russian Kaliningrad. Let’s see some photos of the city how it used to look.

This photo seems to show Kaliningrad of 1990 with all its spirit and mood.

That’s the Cathedral as it is remembered by two generations of Kaliningrad citizens and guests of the city.

    What is the point? To show that the bleak Soviet pseudoarchitecture damaged Koenigsberg even more than bombs?

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      ‘Koenigsberg’ is now Kaliningrad, and has been that way since the end of WW2.

      • yojimbo says:

        Actually that is not correct it was called Kyonigsberg from the time that the Soviet took it from the Germans in 1945 it was named Kaliningrad in July 1946 just over one year after WWII ended.

    Is that scaffolding in the first picture?

    It was the land of Lithuanians captured by russians.
