Welcome to Kaliningrad! Photos by Ricardo Marquina Montañana. It was renamed Kaliningrad after the Second World War. The Königsberg fortress founded by the Teutonic Knights in the year 1255 on the key point mount in the mouth of the Pregel River fallen into the Baltic Sea has spread out very quickly. Three separate settlements Altstadt, Kneiphof and Löbenicht arose around it.

PAVLOVSK, St. Petersburg, Russia - This palace was built by Catherine the Great for her son Paul I (Pavel).  It was built on a bluff overlooking a 1,500 acre estate that now is a lovely park and woodlands.  This palace is more intimate with only 45 rooms.  It was burned down by the Nazi's during WWII and then rebuilt from scratch (which took 25 years.) Luckily, the palace staff managed to bury, hide and protect a large number of the original items in the palace and are once more displayed.
