In 1255 the main castle of Koenigsberg was founded on the bank of the Pregel river. Since the beginning of its history, Koenigsberg actively participated in trade activities as a member of the Hansa Union. The University of Albertina was the main spiritual and cultural centre of the city, which gave many impulses to the life in the city as well as to neighbours from the Baltic region.
         
Since World War II, the political map of Europe changed indeed and the former capital of Eastern Prussia, Koenigsberg became a Russian city. The borders of the region were determined according to the Potsdam Conference of the Allies in 1945. One third of Eastern Prussia with the capital of Koenigsberg was allocated to the former USSR and two thirds of it were attributed to Poland.

The main part of the German population abandoned the territory together with the withdrawing army. In 1946, Koenigsberg was renamed "Kaliningrad" and became an administrative centre of the most western territory of Russia

During the last years, Kaliningrad acquired new features. From the central square of the city one can see a panorama of ongoing construction of new housing facilities. Only the silhouette of the main cathedral built in the 14-th century reminds us of a real age of the city.

Up to 1991 the city had lost its traditional role of bridging East and West because of the closed and limited entrance regime and the absence of international contacts Nowadays, the unique geographical position of the city has become important again.
