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

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

        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.
