Bunker Museum

Kaliningrad, Russia

This bunker was the underground command post of the German general Otto von Lasch during the Battle of Königsberg in 1945. A museum of the city's German past (which lasted 689 years) and Soviet 'liberation' of the city, including several interesting dioramas of events during the days of the battle.

I've never been in a bunker. This was the first time and it was pretty cool to stand where so many otherd had stood before me. Definitely a must see in Kaliningrad.

Amazing memorial

Very interesting place. You will find lots of information on the capitulation of the German forces commanded by the general Otto Lasch and why Kaliningrad (ex Koeningsberg) is Russian now. I recommend it highly if you want to understand the rich history of this place. Unfortunately it is not huge as some would expect but it’s still an interesting experience to visit a bunker.

Relatively small museum. It's basically a corridor with a bunch of small rooms on each side, but every room has a lot of content in every room. Even if you don't get a guide, you can learn a lot just by reading the signs on the walls or using the AR app. Most of the exposition is dedicated to World War II and the Red Army's offensive against the German forces in Konigsberg. The catch is that you need to know Russian to read the signs. Not sure if the guides speak English either, so enter at your own risk.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
