Geography[edit | edit source]

The district is one of the westernmost in Kaliningrad Oblast. It is situated south of Kaliningrad at the border with Poland and is sparsely populated.

The former Prussian Eastern Railway runs through the district along the Baltic coast, connecting the city of Kaliningrad with Gdańsk in Poland. Another line, the former East Prussian Southern Railway, connects Kaliningrad with Polish Bartoszyce via Bagrationovsk; however, passenger service was discontinued in 2011. Two major roads, the R516 (part of the former Berlinka autobahn) and the A195, also lead through Bagrationovsk Rayon to the Polish border.

The most important river in the district is the Prokhladnaya, which mouths into Vistula Lagoon.

Partnerships[edit | edit source]

The district is in partnership with Verden District in Lower Saxony, Germany.
