Travel to one of the oldest resorts on the Baltic coast – Zelenogradsk. The history of Zelenogradsk (in the past Kranza) originates from the Krantakrug tavern (from the Prussian word “krantas” – a steep coast) and has more than two centuries. Numerous pensions, motels, beautiful hotels and fashionable private homes adorned the coast of Kranza in less than half a century.
During a tour of Zelenogradsk we will see the architectural appearance of the city, which has been pretty well preserved from German times. In 1885 a railway was built that connected the sea resort with Königsberg. All contributed to the fact that the German Kranz became a favorite vacation spot. Traveling around the historical center of the former German resort, you will see the former fashionable Baltic Sea Hotel, where Stolypin stayed with his wife and daughter during his visit to Kranz. In honor of this fact, a memorial plaque was erected on the historic building.
You can also plunge into the Middle Ages in the castle “Nesselbek” recreated according to all the canons of medieval architecture. The Museum of Medieval Torture (16+), located in the castle tower, offers to see with your own eyes the history of corporal punishment and the tools of the Inquisition. The Museum of Medieval Torture rightfully takes pride of place among the museums of Kaliningrad and is worthy of your attention.
