Kaliningrad was a positive surprise for us. We enjoyed the nature, the people, city life – and well, Summer was back which also helped. We were very fortunate to stay with an amazing couple for some days, who did everything to show us around, support us and help us understand a bit of the complexity of this region. It is not the best place for hikers, since there is no infrastructure for pedestrians outside of the urban areas. People are very helpful, but very few speak English and being able to read Russian makes orientation a bit easier.
This didn’t spoil our experience and we are very happy we included Kaliningrad in our route!
