Know Before You Go
The region is well-connected to European Russia and Belarus, with numerous flights and trains. The local airport is an international one, with flights to/from a few major destinations like Prague, Barcelona, Warsaw, Berlin, Riga, as well as Tashkent, Djerba and a few charters in summer. Another option is to fly into a neighboring country and take a bus, train or ferry to the region. You can also drive to Kaliningrad Oblast, as roads have greatly improved. However, the lines at the borders can sometimes take up to 4 hours depending on the time of day. Note that you'll need a multiple entry visa to travel by land between Kaliningrad and mainland Russia.
