The Historical and Cultural Centre “The Grand Embassy” at the Koenig Gate invites to the new exposition. The exhibition about the gate’s history, its reconstruction and restoration, is going to be replaced by “The Pharmacy of the Three Kings”. A small gothic hall will be turned into an alchemists’ and physicians’ world. The brick entourage in the best way possible will project an atmosphere of a medieval chemist’s. Guests will “travel” to the epoch of knighthood and duchy, and then – visit a chemist’s shop of the Prussian Kings. Every step at the exhibition is a fascinating travel to the world of secrets and mysteries. Who knows, maybe here one can reveal a philosophers' stone secret! Here one can see chemist’s cabinets with crude drugs, medicines, mineral water and potions, a counter as well as stuffed exotic animals and herbs. Don’t be surprised to see a Koenigsberg chemist who will offer you a melancholy potion or heal-all herbal tea. Moreover, everyone can buy a brochure guide, a collected chemist’s stories from the ancient time till the present days.

Opened at the art gallery of the Maritime Exhibition Centre in Svetlogorsk, the graphics and art exhibition My Odyssey by E. Datsko, Honoured Artist of the RF, comprises over 50 works, created in his art expeditions in 1970—2015. One of his most epochal activities of this period was his expedition to the USA from Vladivostok onboard three packet boats in 1991-1994. His interest in “Russian America” became the dominating art idea. Datsko visited all the major Russian Orthodox churches in the USA as well as the settlements of Russian Old Believers in Alaska. He came to know their everyday life and culture with sincere interest, and a lot of the things he had seen became a part of his works. Another important topic – Russian immigration to the USA after 1917.
