Königsberg Cathedral

Local nameКафедральный собор
LocationKaliningrad, Russia

Königsberg Cathedral is a Brick Gothic-style monument in Kaliningrad, Russia, located on Kneiphof island in the Pregel river. It is the most significant preserved building of the former City of Königsberg, which was largely destroyed in World War II.

Dedicated to Virgin Mary and St Adalbert, it was built as the see of the Prince-Bishops of Samland in the 14th century. Upon the establishment of the secular Duchy of Prussia, it became the Lutheran Albertina University church in 1544. The spire and roof of the cathedral burnt down after two RAF bombing raids in late August 1944; reconstruction started after the Perestroika movement in 1992.
