This is the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Kazan, better known as the St. Paraskeva Church.

RU-1549813, sent by Liliy.
This is the "Fish Village" in Kaliningrad, a commercial area made up of small old-fashioned buildings, souvenir shops and stalls, smokehouses, wine cellars, fish restaurants, bars, cafes, discos, business premises, company offices, hotels and museums. The most recognizable building of “Fish Village” is a Viewing Tower “Lighthouse”.
You may enjoy a wonderful view over the river and the island of Kant sitting with a cup of coffee in a cozy cafe “Coffee Lounge”, located on the third floor of the tower.
In addition, there is an art gallery.
The tower’s height is 31 meter, 133 steps.
