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.
