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

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

      • 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.
