Kaliningrad


Kaliningrad is a sea port, and the administrative center of the Kaliningard Oblast, which is an exclave of Russia lying on the Baltic Sea coast between Lithuania and Poland. As of the 2002 census, the city had a population of 430,003.

Kaliningard was once a German city, known by the German name of Königsberg. The city was captured by the Soviet Red Army, after a brutal and extended series of battles during the final stages of World War II. As was agreed by the Allies at the Potsdam Conference, sovereignty over the city and the surrounding area was transfered to the Soviet Union (the city became part of the Russian SFSR. The name of the city was changed from Königsberg to Kaliningrad in 1946, in honor of Mikhail Ivanovich Kalinin, one of the original Bolsheviks, who died that same year.

Kaliningrad had an estimated population of 820,500.

Product Description:
In the summer and fall of 1991, Anne Applebaum, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gulag and Iron Curtain, took a three month road trip through the freshly independent borderlands of Eastern Europe. She deftly weaves the harrowing history of the region and captures the effects of political upheaval on a personal level.

An extraordinary journey into the past and present of the lands east of Poland and west of Russia—an area defined throughout its history by colliding empires. Traveling from the former Soviet naval center of Kaliningrad on the Baltic to the Black Sea port of Odessa, Anne Applebaum encounters a rich range of competing cultures, religions, and national aspirations.
 
In reasserting their heritage, the inhabitants of the borderlands attempt to build a future grounded in their fractured ancestral legacies. In the process, neighbors unearth old conflicts, devote themselves to recovering lost culture, and piece together competing legends to create a new tradition. Rich in surprising encounters and vivid characters, Between East and West brilliantly illuminates the soul of the borderlands and the shaping power of the past.

Product Description:
The nine countries bordering the Baltic Sea offer an immense variety of cruising grounds, peoples and cultures. There are thousands of harbours and innumerable anchorages, and it would take an entire bookshelf, to cover them all in detail. The information contained in this book is therefore selective. It has been chosen for its value both at the planning stages - preparing the yacht, choosing the most suitable route, timing and communications etc - and again on arrival, when a general overview of each individual country is followed by specific harbour information. Where detailed cruising information is readily available - effectively Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Finland - only selected harbours are covered, chosen, with a few exceptions, as fulfilling certain key needs. Where cruising information is more limited - Poland, Kaliningrad, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia - many smaller harbours are also featured in detail. In addition to comprehensive suggestions for further reading (and sources in each country from which they may be ordered) more than 200 websites are listed, again chosen for their relevance both at the planning stage and en route. In order to facilitate the latter, as well as for general communication, details of internet access points are included for most major harbours. This 3rd edition has been produced by a team from the Royal Cruising Club and contains substantial changes. Coverage of the West Coast of Sweden, the Gota Canal and Gulf of Bothnia has been extended and there is more information detailed information on the Baltic states. Throughout there are new plans and photos and the technical data on countries and navigation has been thoroughly revised. Beautiful, secluded anchorages, picturesque canals, bustling marinas, dramatic cities - all await those considering a Baltic cruise.
