Koenigsberg Castle - shards of the past

The construction of Koenigsberg Castle began in 1255. Over time it became the residence of the Teutonic Order and Prussian kings. The emperors Peter the First, Napoleon Bonaparte and Alexander the Second were here in different years.

The appearance of the Muscovites hall in the Koenigsberg castle was associated with Peter's embassy ​​where the Russian delegation was located. The castle church was under it, where in 1701 the first Prussian King Frederick I was crowned. The Silver Library with ancient manuscripts was kept in the castle. The church tower was the highest in the city. One wing of the castle was given to the hospital and a shelter for the sick and elderly knights of the Teutonic Order. Since 1731 the former prison cellar was occupied by the restaurant "Bloody Court". Koenigsberg Castle was badly damaged in the Second World War because of the bombing of the British Air Force in August 1944 and the storming of the city in April 1945. In 1969 its ruins blew up. Only in 2001 archeological work began on the site of the former castle. Now one can wander through the ruins. It has gradually became a tradition for Kaliningrad residents to conduct here knight tournaments and festivals of craftsmen.
