Kaliningrad Oblast ( Russian : Калинингра́дская о́бласть , Kaliningradskaya oblast ) is a federal subject of the Russian Federation that is located on the coast of the Baltic Sea . As an oblast , its constitutional status is equal to each of the other 84 federal subjects. Its administrative center is the city of Kaliningrad , formerly known as Königsberg . It is the only Baltic port in the Russian Federation that remains ice-free in winter. According to the 2010 census , it had a population of 941,873. [10]

The oblast is an exclave , bordered by Poland to the south and Lithuania to the east and north, so visa-free travel to the main part of Russia is only possible by sea or air. The territory was formerly part of East Prussia . With the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945, the territory was annexed by the Soviet Union . Following the post-war migration and expulsion of the German-speaking population, the territory was populated with citizens from the Soviet Union. Today virtually no ethnic Germans remain; most of the several thousand that live there are recent immigrants from other parts of the former Soviet Union.

Early in the 21st century, the hitherto flagging economy of Kaliningrad Oblast became one of the best performing economies in Russia. This was helped by a low manufacturing tax rate related to its "Special Economic Zone" (SEZ) status. As of 2006 [update] , one in three televisions manufactured in Russia came from Kaliningrad. The territory's population was one of the few in Russia that was expected to show strong growth after the collapse of the USSR . [15]

Russia's smallest oblast (region) of Kaliningrad is an exclave located 200 miles away from the border of Russia proper. Kaliningrad was a spoil of World War II , allocated from Germany to the Soviet Union at the Potsdam Conference that divided Europe between the allied powers in 1945. The oblast is a wedge-shaped piece of land along the Baltic Sea between Poland and Lithuania, approximately one-half the size of Belgium, 5,830 mi2 (15,100 km2).

Known as Konigsberg prior to Soviet occupation, the city was founded in 1255 near the mouth of the Pregolya River. The philosopher Immanuel Kant was born in Konigsberg in 1724. The capital of German East Prussia, Konigsberg was the home to a grand Prussian Royal Castle, destroyed along with much of the city in World War II.

Konigsberg was renamed Kaliningrad in 1946 after Mikhail Kalinin, formal "leader" of the Soviet Union from 1919 until 1946. At the time, Germans living in the oblast were forced out, to be replaced with Soviet citizens. While there were early proposals to change the name of Kaliningrad back to Konigsberg, none were successful.
