Königsberg



The German city of Königsberg (Dutch: Koningsbergen) was completely destroyed by the Russians during WW II. Instead of rebuilding the once picturesque inner city they decided to blow up all remaining buildings and make it a park. Only the church remains. Notice the highway running across the ‘park’. At present the town is called Kaliningrad.
