Located on the Baltic Sea between Poland and Lithuania, Kaliningrad Oblast is the northern part of what was once East Prussia. Traded and fought over for centuries, the territory is now home to mostly Russian-speaking people, but many traces of German culture are still evident in the cities and ruins of Prussian castles scattered across the landscape.
The largest town is the capital Kaliningrad, formerly the famous German city of Königsberg which was heavily damaged in World War II, now home to many museums, theatres, monuments and pleasant parks. A highlight of this tour is the Curonian Spit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site shared by Russia and Lithuania, with its elongated sand dune peninsula dotted with lighthouses and historic fishing settlements.
This group tour is limited to 15 persons and will be escorted by our brilliant local guide Olga Danilova who can be seen on Michael Palin’s New Europe. Her enthusiasm for her home Oblast of Kaliningrad is infectious!
