History

The King’s Gate — one of seven Konigsberg’s preserved city and fortified gates, but the most well-known and may very well be the most interesting. The modern appearance it acquired in 1850. The Gate embodies the Prussia’s past of Kaliningrad since three bas-reliefs on the façade depict Czech King Otokar II, King Frederick I of Prussia and Duke Albrecht of Prussia, people, who played an important role in the history of Konigsberg. Anyone who has an interest in the history of the capital of East Prussia should visit the museum and to know its numerous traditions and relations with the Russian Empire.
