Königsberg ‹-› Kaliningrad

The city center of Königsberg before World War II

The present situation

After WWII the city center of the German town of Königsberg was not rebuild. Instead the Soviets changed it into a park. Only the church remains.

  1. This is very sad. The city looks as if it were as lovely as Paris before the war.

  2. In this snapshot, it looks like the Soviets took all the life out of this poor city. You have posted others where it looks like they took all the beauty out of the city. The most tragic snapshots are the ones where there is neither life nor beauty.

  3. I think it's bizarre. It's a strange twist of history.
