Svetlogorsk Things to Do

  • Warmbad (warm bath)

    This is the landmark of Svetlogorsk from the "Rauschen time". It is built in "Jugendstil". The water tower is 25 m high and can be climbed.

  • the pier (jetty)

    You cannot walk very far out but still it's nice that there is one. It's a popular spot for visitors to have their photo taken and to watch what's going on on the beach.

  • Architecture

    There are lots of interesting buildings - style wise. Quite a few were built by the Germans. Just get off the main drag and explore the side streets.

  • Sundial

    This is a major attraction on the promenade. There are wide steps leading down to it from the town but there are currently closed due to major repairs.

  • the beach

    The road down to the beach is quite steep. There is also a gondola but it wasn't running when I was there. It looks like it needs a good overhaul.

  • the promenade

    For a short stretch there is a promenade above the beach which has a restaurant and cafe, ice cream vendors and of course also souvenir vendors for amber.

Svetlogorsk Restaurants

  • sweet corn and barbecue everywhere

    mostly down at the promenade that heads along the beach you'll find a lot of people who sell hot sweetcorn. it's very cheap and tasty! But there are other great possibilities to eat local food. one restaurant sells kind of russian souvlaki (can't remember the name). You can try everything because it's very cheap!

  • Sit outside!

    There are various cafes etc. around. If eating outside beware of the wasps. I was eating in a stolovaya (self-service restaurant) and because of the massive wasp attack had to flee back inside. A local woman told me that wasps had been especially bad this year.

Svetlogorsk Transportation

  • Svetlogorsk II

    If travelling by train, make sure you get off at the second Svetlogorsk station. When arriving to the left of the station there is a platni toilet. The only one I saw in the whole town. And there is the town map too.

  • Elektrichka (local train)

    There are several trains per day. When you start from Yushny station in Kaliningrad, you have to buy the ticket in the small hall off to the left as you enter the station building and there at the second window. You can buy a return ticket for 72 rubels (about 2 Euro).Alternatively, there are many buses too.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Svetlogorsk Warnings and Dangers

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This map is rather useless unless you want a map that just shows you the street grid and the location of the railway and bus stations. There are no tourist sights mentioned. Better unfold the map before you buy it, so that you are sure it is useful to you!

    Favorite thing: In general Svetlogorsk is a calm and smal city at the baltic sea. Everything is quite cheap there. No extra activities, usual shopping or nightclubs. An usual town at the seaside for your holidays.
