Queen Louise of Prussia, the grandmother of Russian Emperor Alexander II, played a central part in the region’s history. The main landmarks associated with Queen Louise are to be found elsewhere in the Kaliningrad Region: Sovetsk (Tilsit before 1946), where the Tilsit Peace Treaty was signed in 1807 between Russia, which sided with Prussia, and Napoleon. There is a recently reconstructed Queen Louise Monument in Sovetsk, and a bridge named in her honour, spanning Russia and Lithuania. But if a trip to Sovetsk, which would take you far inland and away from the seaboard, is not an option, visit this placid park in the middle of Zelenogradsk. Louise and her courtiers once ran through this park, fleeing from the French soldiers.
