Pillau (modern day Baltiysk)

 

   PILLAU (BALTIYSK) The extensive Prussian Eastern Railway linked Konigsberg to Breslau, Thorn, Insterburg, Eydtkuhnen, Tilsit, and Pillau. In 1860 the railway connecting Berlin with St. Petersburg was completed and increased Königsberg's commerce. Regular steamers plied to Memel, Tapiau and Labiau, Cranz, Tilsit, and Danzig. the importance of Pillau declined from 15 November 1901, when a shipping canal was opened linking the Vistula Lagoon near Zimmerbude (now Svetly) to Königsberg. Pillau's economy was heavily based on large shipping vessels being forced to dock in the town due to the shallow depth of the lagoon near Königsberg, the capital and the largest city of East Prussia, and the goods would then be transported from Pillau to Königsberg by other means. Constructed at a huge cost of thirteen million marks, the canal allowed vessels of a 21 feet (6.4 m) draught to moor alongside the city or to sail directly to Königsberg without stopping at Pillau, causing a serious decline to the town's economy.    Baltiysk, is the westernmost town in Russia, and a major base of the Russian Navy's Baltic Fleet and is a ferry-port on the route to St. Petersburg.
