Baltiysk is a seaport town called ‘Western Gate’, located in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia. Prior to 1946 known by its German name Pillau. Besides a big seaport Baltiysk is the main base of the Baltic fleet of the Russian Federation. Being located in a nice place with beaches, the sea, and having beautiful old German architecture, now this city is in a really horrible condition and seems like it is getting worse year by year.
