Kant Island, formerly called Kniephof Island, occupies a place in the middle of the Pregoli River. Today, you can see only a park with numerous stone sculptures and the only building - a huge cathedral. However, in the 14th century there was a whole city here, which was part of the then Königsberg.

In its best days, the city of Kniephof was the center of shipping and trade, was actively built up, had dozens of roads and hundreds of houses, and was connected to the mainland by five bridges. But in August 1944, the city was razed to the ground by massive British bombing. Of the buildings, only the cathedral remained, and the ruins of other buildings were used to restore Leningrad. Overtime, it was decided to improve the territory, as a result of which an arboretum was laid out on the island and a sculpture park was laid, and a little later the destroyed cathedral was also restored. Today the Cathedral on the island of Kant in Königsberg is a visiting card of the city and its main attraction.

Near one of the walls of the Cathedral are the remains of the outstanding thinker and founder of German classical philosophy - Immanuel Kant (this is the reason that the skeleton was given such a name).

Entertainment

There are few entertainments on the island of kant, but they undoubtedly deserve attention. Mainly, this is an inspection of the cathedral and monuments to Albrecht of Brandenburg - Duke of Prussia and Julius Rull - a German public figure and theologian. You can also walk along the Castle Bridge to the Fish Village, an ethnographic, handicraft and trade center of the city made in the Old architectural style.

But the most favorite way of spending time on the island of kant among locals and guests is still leisurely walks, picnics, photo shoots and a quiet rest, allowing you to enjoy the silence, fresh air and picturesque views. If you want to get distracted in full, there is an opportunity to get into a small boat and go on a refreshing river walk through the evening Kaliningrad. 

In addition, we note that on June 26, on the island of Kant, an international festival "Territory of the World" is held, where famous musicians perform, city artisans show their works and a lot of interesting events take place, and the children's festival "Multyashkino", which includes a screening of cartoons, a fair and entertainment programs. Brandenburg Gate in Kaliningrad
