Kaliningrad: top 5 Destinations on the Rise in Europe

Kaliningrad was mentioned in the latest TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards as the 5th destination on the rise in Europe. It’s a great achievement for our region to be in the same list with such great tourist places like:

  • Las Palmas de Gran Canariaa and Malaga, Spain
  • Tbilisi, Georgia
  • Kiev, Ukraine
  • Wroclaw, Poland
  • Bologna, Italy
  • Faro, Portugal
  • Bucharest, Romania
  • Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A little extra chunk of Russia stuck between Lithuania and Poland on the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad was known as Königsberg from its founding by the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century until after World War II. It was renamed, repopulated with Russians and became part of the Soviet Union. Today, as it has been for centuries, it’s known for amber products, with most of the world’s harvestable amber still lying off its coast. The 14th century Königsberg Cathedral is a main city attraction.

So If you decided to visit Kaliningrad, feel free to contact us for any related information. We’ll try our best to help you. For example, we can research a way to make a trip that will include four mentioned destinations at once.

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.

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”
