Friedland Gate

Museum in Kaliningrad

This history museum is housed in the 19th-century Friedland Gate, for years one of the main entry points into the city. Admission includes permanent exhibitions on the Teutonic Knights and the history of the city through eight centuries; there is a little in English. The highlight is a 30-minute multimedia show made up of projections of photos taken in the city between 1908 and 1913, and grainy footage shot around the castle in 1937.
