There is no observation deck as it is in Kaliningrad. For this reason, to have a look on the city from the above, all the tourists go the highest building – the House of Soviets. The locals tenderly call this building “robot’s head”. When the city was German, there was a beautiful medieval castle situated on this place. The castle was seriously injured during the war and was destroyed in the 70s according to the Soviet power order. Nowadays the building of the House of Soviets is abandoned. To reach the roof you have to climb up the stairs with no railing in absolute darkness. To get inside the building – give 200 rubles to the security, they will show the stairs, tell where to go and provide you with a flashlight.
