Health care in Russia is free, although its standard is not always the same high, for specialized treatments you may be asked to pay. (it is best to buy travel insurance)

A city founded by the Teutonic Knights in honor of King Przemysł II Ottokar II. Later, it was incorporated by King Casimir IV Jagiellon into the Polish state (Królewiec), and then returned to German hands as the capital of Ducal Prussia (Königsberg), which was a Polish fief. After World War II, the city was finally incorporated into the USSR under the Potsdam Agreements.
Once one of the richest and most beautiful cities on the Baltic Sea, it was almost completely destroyed during the war and never rebuilt.
Today it is a special place, a thoroughly Russian city, although not like Moscow, but when we delve into it, we will find traces of its ancient history.
