The city was founded in the 13th century by knights of the Teutonic Order. Much later it became the capital of East Prussia (Germany). The city was known as Königsberg until 1945, when it was ceded to the Soviet Union under the Potsdam Agreement.

Königsberg was largely destroyed during World War II by Allied bombing, its population fled or was removed by force when it became a Soviet city.
The Soviets renamed the city in honor of Mikhail Kalinin, a Bolshevik revolutionary and a Soviet Politician.

After the war, the city was rebuilt, few traces of the former Königsberg remained.

In Soviet times Kaliningrad was closed to foreign visitors. Russia headquartered its important Soviet Baltic Fleet in the city in the 1950s. It is the only Baltic port in the Russian Federation that remains ice-free in winter, the port is a significant naval base for the Russian fleet, because of its strategic importance.
