In the period April-May 2015, by order of the Kaliningrad Region Government and with assistance of the Kaliningrad City Administration, the Non-Profit Partnership “Urban Planning Bureau “Heart of the City” conducted a number of activities to inform the general public on the progress of the preparation for an open international competition for the architectural design of the Governmental historic and cultural complex on the grounds of the former order castle Königsberg in Kaliningrad.
In particular, two public discussions took place on 21 April 2015 in the Central Library named after Anton Chekhov and on 14 May 2015 in the premises of the I.
