Today (May 9) is a national Russian holiday – Victory Day. Russia celebrates the victory over Nazi Germany, while remembering those who died in order to achieve it. On 9 May 1945 (by Moscow time) the German military surrendered to the Soviet Union and the Allies of World War II in Berlin.
Kaliningrad (formally Konigsberg) became part of the USSR at the end of World War II. Before that time, it was part of East Prussia and Germany. During our time in Kaliningrad, we had the opportunity to visit a military cemetery/museum dedicated to honoring World War II military. I thought today would be a good day to share a few of those pictures! Also, the man and woman in front of the tank were our driver and our intepreter. We really enjoyed them and we will continue to work with them on our next two trips to Kaliningrad. They did everything they could to accomodate us during our stay.
