Welcome to Zelenogradsk
The long beach that gave Zelenogradsk (Зеленоградск; formerly known as 'Kranz') the status of a royal bathing resort for the Kingdom of Prussia is still the town’s prime attraction. It’s a low-key place with a nostalgic atmosphere: crumbling Soviet eyesores, lovely German buildings and modern villas stand side by side. Renovation of the promenade has been going on for years, but it's still possible to enjoy a seaside perambulation. In addition to the beach, Zelenogradsk is the gateway to Kurshskaya Kosa (Curonian Spit) National Park.
