This paper was presented at the Sixth international conference on Baltic and Nordic Studies in Romania, Historical memory, the politics of memory and cultural identity: Romania, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region in comparison, hosted by the Romanian Association for Baltic and Nordic Studies, Faculty of History and Political Sciences of Ovidius University of Constan?a and International Summer School of The University of Oslo, Norway, May 22-23, 2015. Supported by a grant from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway, The EEA Fund for Bilateral Relations, contract no. 910/20.03.2015.



The article presents the analysis of city space of Kaliningrad, capital city of Russian exclave Kaliningrad oblast. I use the methodology proposed by Ewa Rewers – hermeneutics of a trace, and Karl Schl?gel – new optics to analyse architectural image of Kaliningrad. The historical and architectural layers of the city coexist and have impact on the identity of its inhabitants.

În redactarea sa, folosesc metodologia propusă de Ewa Rewers – hermeneutica unui vestigiu, ?i Karl Schl?gel – izvor al unei optici noi în vederea analizării imaginii arhitecturale a Kaliningrad-ului. Straturile istorice ?i arhitecturale ale ora?ului coexistă ?i au un impact asupra identită?ii locuitorilor.
