A Bit of History

The cathedral was first mentioned in documents from 1333. By 1380, it was decorated with frescoes and officially opened to parishioners, but the appearance was supplemented with various details until the 1640s. At the beginning of the 16th century, the temple was converted into a Lutheran one, and then the University of Königsberg was founded, and the cathedral became a University church. Then the Wallenrod library and the "professional tomb" settled here, where Immanuel Kant, the most famous inhabitant of the city in its entire history, was buried. Brandenburg Gate in Kaliningrad

Cathedral Today

During the Great Patriotic War, the cathedral burned down, a new look in the style of German Gothic is the result of restoration. Only a few stone epitaphs have survived from the pre-war interior decor. The famous clock on the tower, Bells, and the inner hall were restored. A colonnade was erected over Kant's sarcophagus of dark granite, and the main hall of the church was turned into a concert hall.

Several premises are occupied by the Immanuel Kant Museum. In other rooms, there is an exhibition that tells about the history of the cathedral and the island of Kneiphof, as well as about famous townspeople. Here you can see a collection of coins and banknotes, a carved wooden library and a mini organ. Tunnel to Proval lake in Pyatigorsk
