The first stop is in Zelenogradsk/Cranz.
The German name Cranz, originally Cranzkuhren, derives from the old Prussian word krantas, meaning "the coast". Zelenogradsk has become well-known since 1816, now it is the most favorite place for Kaliningrad citizens and visitors.
Zelenogradsk preserves the charm of a small flat sea town with its streets leading to the man-made parapet on the seaside. The underwater sea currents create most favourable resort conditions in this area. Zelenogradsk is located within a 10 minutes drive from the unique sanctuary 'the Curonian spit'.

Next stop is the acknowledged tourist centre – Svetlogorsk/Rauschen – it became known as a resort in 1913. You will enjoy the town's treelined streets, pine woods and beaches as well as visit a former Catholic church, the XIXth century Water Tower and Art Noveau Bathhouse.

National Park Curonian Spit (Kurshskaya Kosa)

We will take you to one of the most unique cultural landscape with wooded sand dunes and magic forests.
The Curonian spit is a natural formation. It took several thousand years for the spit to shape out from the sands blown by the wind and dragged by the sea waves and to finally form a narrow sandy neck of land that separates the Curonian Gulf from the Baltic Sea.
The spit is about 100 km long (98 km, to be more precise) and connects the Kaliningrad region with Lithuania. Its widest part is 3.8 km and the narrowest point is 400 m.
This place has no rivals in the world. It is an unforgettable intercourse with na-ture. You will visit the museum of the spit, station of the migrating birds of the Zoo Institute, mount on the top of the highest dune Efa.

The Heart of the Baltic fleet - Baltiysk / Pillau

We invite you to the journey to a Russia's westernmost edge! 
It is a huge navy base of Russia, located on the Baltic. It has been opened to foreign visitors since 1995, but you have to get the special permission beforehand.
Among the main sightseeings in Baltiysk is the pentagonal Pillau Citadel, founded by the Swedes in 1626, completed by the Prussians in 1670, renovated in 1870 and currently holding a naval museum; the ruins of the 13th-century Lochstadt Castle; a maze of 19th-century naval fortifications; the Naval Cathedral of St. George (1866); the 32-metre Expressionist observation tower  (1932); the Gothic Revival building of the Baltic Fleet Museum (1903); and an elegant Lighthouse, dating from 1813. A stone cross, erected in 1830 to commemorate the supposed spot of St. Adalbert of Prague's martyrdom, was destroyed by the Soviets and restored a millennium after the event, in 1997.

East Prussia provinces -Sovetsk (Tilsit) – Neman (Ragnit) –Chernyakhovsk (Insterburg)

This tour starts with a drive to the North-East, visiting the ruins of the XVth century church in Gross Legitten. It was not damaged during the War, but was immediately abandoned and is now in poor condition.
The drive to Polessk (Labiau) is through several villages whose German past is clearly visible in their architecture. Labiau itself has been largely rebuilt but the ruins of the XIII century Teutonic castle remain, as do several large XIX century town
houses.
Sovietsk (Tilsit), the next town to be visited, has held onto more of its German past with
many streets still as they were originally built.The Queen Louise Bridge across the Neman River is now a border with Lithuania. Visitors can get close enough to take photographs.
Chernyakhovsk (Insterburg) was the third city of East Prussia and is now equally important in Kaliningrad region. Buildings from each of the last eight centuries testify to its long history and still there is a hope that many will be restored.

in ruins.
