    Eric, although the old name is nice, the city changed name ca 1945. How old are you? Nobody who lives anywhere nearby uses the old name unless they are referring to historical times, or they are neo nazis. Are you trying to make some kind of point?

    Really? Maybe it should be changed back then! Changing the names of places seems to be a speciality in Russia.... ! They are probably getting sick of that name in Kaliningrad! No changes for over 50 years... and the Germans would be delighted too.... How about it!

    As far as I know, the name of that bolshevik doesn't make too much sense as a name for the city...

    Edited.
    I guess you're right. There's no need in responding to provocations.

    None whatsoever. Königsberg in Preußen was the capital of Eastern Prussia and was founded long before the nazis.
