Kaliningrad (aka-ugliest city in Eastern Europe) is under the process of reconstructing (its a rather vague term of describing it however) the old Fishing Villiage.

Overhead view of plan


Reconstruction photos



From the looks of the last photo, it appears that even the grey dilapidated commieblocks are being renovated (also good news)

I see Kaliningrad is experiencing some major renovation. It sure doesn't look that ugly from what I can see in these pictures.

Bullshit, i have just returned from there and this incredibly poor quality "reconstruction" is about the only thing that's happening there. Please, no propaganda about how good Russians are managing the "oblast" that was temporarly given to them here, ok?

believe me, it is'nt... there is a saying - "Umom Rossiju nepaniat"... every corner of the city is littered to the very last sqcm, service is at the stoneage to say the best, when trying to enter Dom cathedral, i was atacked by two homeless dogs who ran out of it and i can go on forever...

I'll make a thread later in S&B section (since it's Lithuanian ethnic lands) later to show THE REAL situation in the Nadruvian, Prussian and Sembian lands, not the fairytale Kremlin is showing everywhere.

As much as I respect you for being objective, you impulsive insults are unnecessary. The same goes for you actions of insulting ethnicity/nationalities, which is not allowed on this forum. Judging by your attitude, I'd guess you were into making provokating statements I'm well aware that the glorious city of Kaliningrad resembles something out of 1984, but your statements are exacerbating enough. I have the right to post what fits the thread category, ok. Propaganda regardless.

Well anyways, lets hope a mod/admin comes by. Later...

believe me, it is'nt... there is a saying - "Umom Rossiju nepaniat", well that is true: the mentality and self respect of people is increadibly low - every corner of the city is littered to the very last sqcm, service is at the stoneage to say the best, when trying to enter Dom cathedral, i was atacked by two homeless dogs who ran out of it and i can go on forever...

This threory though, a i've comme to experiance myself is a complete nonsense - there is quite a large piece of the city in the north that survived untouched and it definetly makes up for some though, incredibly hideous looking parts - e.g. south and east

"Umom Rossiju nepaniat" should mean something like an exclamation of how irrational Russians are or something like that.

BTW too many nationalism already, like I already said, we should stop quarreling and just start killing each other

I'm living in one and just spent few days seeing every corner of the other one, so i do have more than enough ground to say what i said. Picture seeing definetly doesnt give you any ground, you need to acctually visit the place to understand what it's like.

the saying means something like - "You wont understand russians using your head" and it was made up by russians themselves so...

And i'd also say that it's not nationalism, but hysteria mostly by some people... the moment you say something negative of Russia or critisize it's actions, you'r called russophobe, Nazi and so on... It's well know truth that about Russia - it's either good or brilliant, or else, your a fashist scum...
