Anniversary Celebrations Underway in Kaliningrad

Residents of Kaliningrad, the westernmost region of Russia, are today celebrating the region's anniversary under the slogan 'Goodwill and Beauty to Kaliningrad'. Kaliningrad appeared on Russia's map on July 4 1946. 400 thousand people will visit the region as honorary guests from the region's twenty-two western twin-towns, as well as a delegation of the Council of Europe, which will present the town with a plaque marking Kaliningrad's success in international cooperation.
