Zelenogradsk Promenade

In Zelenogradsk, parts of the promenade periodically get destroyed by storm waves from the Baltic Sea, and the embankment has to be built back every time. But nothing reminds you of those storms in summer. Ironically, the beachfront promenade in Zelenogradsk, which name means "green town," is not as green as the one in Svetlogorsk nearby, which is overgrown with pine trees. The upside is that the beach gets more light in sunny weather, compared to Svetlogorsk, which name means "light town."
