Immanuel Kant's Grave, Kaliningrad

4.3
Read the inscription on Immanuel Kant's Grave and learn which two things never ceased to occupy the philosopher's mind. The memorial to the great philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment is one of the few historical places from the German era that survived when the Soviets took over the city, thanks to an open letter written by an anonymous person. The letter, which cited Engels' writings to prove that Kant was important for communist ideology, saved not only the grave but also the ruins of the nearby cathedral. Kant was originally buried within the cathedral; the mausoleum was created in 1924.

  • It's amazing the memorial has survived a number of changes in government. It's still there and his ideas are still influential.  more »
  • Many just married couples go here. It's located at a corner of the cathedral which is "a must". Very much recommended.  more »

  • The museum is fine, but very small. Sadly you cannot go directly to the tomb.
