Svetlogorsk town, Kaliningradskaya OblastThe city of Svetlogorsk (the German name is Rauschen) is more than 500 years old. For many years it has been a commonplace fishing village. Only after the railroad has been laid to the coast, Rauschen began to rapidly evolve and acquire the glory of the first-class climatic resort on the Baltic Sea. During the Soviet era citizens from all regions of the Soviet Union used to rest and get treated in Svetlogorsk, although professional "exposers of the communist regime" argue that the city has been chosen by the "Communist Party elite functionaries", who, as it is said, basically had rest, restored health, luxuriated and had a real blast there.
Of course, it's all lies. Svetlogorsk has always been open to all. Suffice it to recall that pioneer camps of almost all large enterprises of Kaliningrad used to be located along the sea shore.
