|In the midst of a whole lot of countries - Geeez|
|We can buy into this idea - sounds happy.|
|And how many times have we heard this one? Sound advice.|
|The round-up in Kaliningrad|
|Soviet Union control meant 'Control'!|
|A picture is worth - what - everything|
|The Hell of World War II|
Not much of the city was left after the war, but over the decades, it was rebuilt and people began moving back in -- not those Jews or Slavs or anyone else not wanted by the Soviet Union, but people did move back.
In 1946, the area was renamed Kaliningrad -- and thankfully, everyone can pronounce it!
|It was rebuilt beautifully through the decades|
|Modern days just laying in the sun on the Baltic|
As with all stories this one is not finished – Kaliningrad is the only Russian sea port on the Baltic Sea which is ice-free all year round. Thus the reason the Soviets wanted it so badly at Potsdam.
Never does not mean never – a story is to not finished until it is done.
The story of Kalingrad seems never ending. Hmm, "The Never Ending Story" -- sounds rather catchy.
But wasn't there a film with that title?
Maybe -- but that is the true case with this gem on the Baltic.
Philosophically that is.
