Svetlogorsk – a resort town on the coast of the Baltic Sea

Svetlogorsk (until 1947 – Rauschen) is a small resort town with a population of about 13,000 people located on the coast of the Baltic Sea, 40 kilometers north-west of Kaliningrad, in the Kaliningrad region.

This is an excellent place to relax – quiet, close to other European countries, with the sea and wonderful architecture. The sea waters, as well as the waters of the local lake, mud baths and air help to improve your health. Photos by: Vasiliy Nikitinskiy.
