Kaliningrad – the small city with the population about half a million people. Its historical name – Konigsberg that in translation from German is meant by the "royal mountain". Initially Konigsberg was founded as the lock by the German knights of the Teutonic Order in 1255.
Today the city of Kaliningrad is a large sea port, the garden city, and regional center, a junction of two cultures and stories – Russian and European. It expresses both in culture, and in the special "Europeanized" mentality of residents of Kaliningrad. The new appearance of the city combines beauty and mystery of ancient buildings with the modern architecture, and also cultural and business life.
Here were born and I. Kant, E. T. Hoffman, F. Bessel worked. At different times R.Wagner (he lived and I worked some time in Konigsberg), F. Liszt, A. Rubenstein went on tour. In 1913 the Academy of Arts was founded.
Kaliningrad is heart of the Amber land. The Kaliningrad region is famous for the fact that 90% of world reserves of amber exactly here are extracted.
You and your pupils have a unique opportunity to visit the most western city of Russia, the well-known amber capital and to fight for prize-winning places at the International festival competition of children's and youthful creativity "The Baltic legend". Don't miss the chance!
