Best places in Russia to relax and feel like in Europe

Best places in Russia to relax and feel like in Europe

Those who are accustomed to traveling annually to Germany, France, Italy, Spain or other European countries are very hard to tolerate coronavirus time. The closure of borders was a sad event for all travelers. However, for the most nostalgic, there is one town in Russia that is admired by all its visitors! Unforgettable impressions of atmospheric streets, which one by one are similar to those that are located in every city in Europe ... There is a special aura, cleanliness, infrastructure, architecture and everything in the same spirit.

Kaliningrad — or not?

The only thing that breaks out of dreams and testifies to being in Russia is the names of streets in Russian, Russian numbers and native language in communication. This town is located in the most European point of Kaliningrad and is called Zelenogradsk.

Few people have heard of this amazing place, but this town looks fantastic and has its own special charm and beauty. Even to the west is the tourist Svetlogorsk, but it looks somehow too artificial and bland. Connoisseurs of the region can argue for a long time which city is located further, but in terms of beauty, most are of the same opinion - Zelenogradsk.

Since The Time of Germany

What is truly striking is the impact of the city's historical past on its modern environment. German Kranz became Soviet Kaliningrad in 1946, but even after a long time, urban architecture retained its European spirit. At the same time, the same compatriots who are at the head of the poor districts of Taishet or Angarsk run here.

Despite the fact that Russians live in Kaliningrad, "observation" and proximity to Europe plays an important role. Here, the owners of the cafe themselves wash the sidewalks in the morning, lined with new modern tiles. Restaurants, kindergartens, shops - all this is made with a touch of the Middle Ages. Here, as well as in Europe, they go to enjoy the beauty, cleanliness and comfortable life.

Baltic Sea

Another reason to visit European Kaliningrad is the sea, the perfect combination of a comfortable atmosphere and clean salty air on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Stylish restaurants, an atmosphere of comfort and peace - some even have the feeling that they are sleeping and dreaming about abroad, although they themselves in reality walk through the territory of Russia.

We can talk for a very long time about the difference between Kaliningrad and other Russian cities, discuss the unusualness of the simplest five-story buildings or private houses from those that we are used to seeing. But it is best just to visit here once to feel the combination of the Russian-European atmosphere.
