Living Environment



19‑21TH SEPTEMBER 2019

MAY 18–19

All About Housing

What defines quality and affordable housing? In which houses do citizens want to live and what principles might improve housing conditions? What is the current living environment in the city and how will it change in the future?

Renowned experts, leading architects, developers, businessmen and government officials will gather at the Living Environment: All About Housing Forum on May 18–19, 2018, in Kaliningrad, to answer these questions and define trends in the development of housing stock. The Forum will show locals the potential of their city and allow them to widely participate in its changing.


Kaliningrad is a unique Russian city with its distinguishable architecture, urban environment and geographic location.

The Living Environment: All About Housing Forum is bound to give impetus to the further development to make this beautiful city even better. Kaliningrad is meant to be a landmark of the Russian Federation.

Kaliningrad region is the westernmost part of Russia. Since the early 20th century the region has been popular for its resorts nationwide, as well as in European countries. Cultural, health and wellness and eco-tourism attract many visitors annually.

The Kaliningrad Regional Drama Theatre will host the Business Program of the Forum.
