Fort №5 «King Frederick Wilhelm III» (branch of Тhe Kaliningrad Regional Museum of History and Art)


Fort №5 is a unique monument of the European fortification. It was built after the Franco-Prussian War in 70s of the XIXth century by means of the French indemnity. It was a part of the defensive belt around Koenigsberg. In 1894 it was named in honour of Frederick Wilhelm III who was the king of Prussia from 1797 to 1840.
The Fort has a shape of an elongated hexagon. It is surrounded by a water moat 20-25 meters wide and 3 to 5 meters deep. There are casemates and caponiers inside the wall. It was considered a secret object but in the beginning of the XXth century it lost its military significance and was often used as a place for celebrations and fireworks.
Before World War II the reconstructions of fortifications started. During the storming of Koenigsberg in spring 1945 the Fort №5 was on the main attack line of the Soviet Army. It was claimed to be the best fortification of the entire Koenigsberg position and formed a strong resistance. The storming of the fort lasted for three days. It was fired from the huge 280 mm artillery mortar and was heavily destroyed. On 8 April the garrison surrendered to the troops of 43-d army. For outstanding courage and valour displayed during the storming, 15 soldiers were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. The memorial complex in honour of the died during the storming of Koenigsberg is situated on the adjacent territory. A weapon collection is displayed in the fort.
Since 2010 it is a part of Тhe Kaliningrad Regional Museum of History and Art. There are two exhibitions «The storming of Koenigsberg» and «Monuments of fortification architecture».

The Мuseum exhibition in the open air «Koenigsberg Castle» (branch of Тhe Kaliningrad Regional Museum of History and Art)


The Order Castle Koenigsberg was founded in 1255 on the  place of Prussian Tuwangste Fortress that was captured by the Teutonic Knights. Place convenient for the construction of the castle was chosen by the Bohemian King Ottokar II Przemysl, who led the most ambitious crusades on the land of Prussia, and allocates the necessary funds (royal gifts) to build a castle.
During the Second World War, the Royal Castle was burned in a British air raid in August 1944.
In 2001, the German magazine «Spiegel» appealed to the administration of the region to allow attempts to find the Amber Room on the ruins of the castle. A contract was concluded between the magazine (funding the production of works), the Kaliningrad Regional Museum of History and Art and the Baltic expedition of the Institute of Archeology.
 By 2005, the underground structures of the West wing and the Castle Tower, basement of the West wing, which were previously used for storing wine and food of the famous castle restaurant «Blutgericht», have been fully excavated. During the excavation a large number of architectural details (dated XIV-XIX centuries) from the Castle church and the «Muscovites Hall» were found.
The museum received thousands of items relating to the history of the castle. The discovery of the treasure with astrology subjects became a sensation. The experts decided that it belonged to King Friedrich Wilhelm II.
From 2006 and until December 2007 excavations were carried out in south-eastern part of the castle. A part of the underground passage was found and the construction of basements of the South wing. An external wall of the south - eastern part of the castle (faced with slabs of sandstone) four meters height, has been cleared.
On that place a museum exhibit in the open air was created. Since 2009 it is a part of the Kaliningrad Regional History and Art Museum.
