Sackheim Gate

Ruslan Shamukov/TASS

Built in the 19th century, Sackheim Gate soon lost its defence value, and became simply a decoration - a semblance of an Arch of Triumph - for the city. After the Second World War the gate was put to work as a storehouse, and that it would remain until 2006, when the historical landmark was restored. Sackheim Gate currently serves as a venue for various exhibitions under the Kaliningrad Union of Photographers.
