We have a local joke here:
If you don’t like weather in Kaliningrad, just wait for half an hour and it will change.
This is partly true, the climate here is very “unstable” and the weather can change several times during the day. But let’s take a look at the weather statistics, so you could get a general impression what you can expect during your trip to Kaliningrad. The following table is from Wikipedia and based on very old data. But you can find both Celsius and Fahrenheit. You can see that Summer is not very hot, Winter – not cold, and Spring and Autumn temperatures can be very unpredictable.
And the next graphs are based on the actual data: average for last 7 years.

For a short term weather forecast I can recommend two options that I use on daily basis.
- 10-day Kaliningrad weather forecast from the main Russian search engine Yandex.
- And the wind and weather forecast for wind related sports that provide detailed predictions by hour.

Therefore, you can plan your trip and enjoy the maximum number sights during the day or stay safe by avoiding trips in the dark. Continue reading “When is Sunrise and Sunset in Kaliningrad”
We have a brand new hostel right in the heart of Kaliningrad. “KD Hostel” is available on Booking.com less than a month, and have a stunning 9.8/10 rating so far. And we have an exclusive review from one of our readers.
Laura from Argentina: KD Hostel is a beautiful Hostel located in the city center of Kaliningrad, right next to the orthodox cathedral and two shopping malls. The hostel has a well equipped kitchen and a cozy couch area. KD Hostel offers double rooms and 6-bed-dorms with a shared bathroom. The beds in the dorms have a curtain for privacy as well as a lamp, a plug socket and a small locker for your valuables. Everything is very clean and nicely decorated. Only cons: one bathroom for all the guests, so you might have to wait to shower, and the staff hardly speaks any English. Continue reading “Review of KD Hostel in the center of Kaliningrad”
