Kneiphof Island (nowadays Kant Island) was once a densely populated quarter surrounded by the River Pregel – 28 streets, 304 houses and Town Hall. Koenigsberg Cathedral rose high above the island town. Kant Island (Kneiphof) had five bridges leading off across the River Pregel and connecting the island with the rest of the world. The history dates back to the 14th century – the settlement near the castle was granted corresponding rights and became one of Koenigsberg's three towns. Today, the island is a tourist attraction of Kaliningrad, where tourists can enjoy a slow walk in the park dotted with stone sculptures, visit the tomb of Kant and the Cathedral.
