Introducing Svetlogorsk

Once called Rauschen, Svetlogorsk is a pleasant, slow-placed spa town, 35km northwest of Kaliningrad. The narrow beach backed by steep sandy slopes is nothing to speak of, but the pretty old German houses, revamped sanatoriums, top-class hotels and dappled forest setting make it worth a visit. Fairly untouched by WWII, Svetlogorsk has benefited from being declared a federal health resort, with good infrastructure and facilities.

The main street, ul Oktyabrskaya, is lined with handsome buildings.
