Kaliningrad in the former Soviet Union was the place to be for space-minded people, but it was secret at that time. After the lifting of the iron curtain, more and more details became available. This paper describes different space and space-related factories in that city. It was written after 1996 when Kaliningrad was renamed Korolev. The author lived in Korolev at the beginning of 1992.
