The building of the railway station.
Water tower, Saratovskaya str. 2A. It was restored in 2012, now it has a cat museum, and at the top is a panoramic observation deck.

Bust of Queen Louise (in the park near the station). Bronze copy of Queen Louise sculpture, made by German sculptor Rauch in the XIX century and stored in the National Gallery of Berlin.
Monument to Adam Mitskevich (in the park).
Monument to the Baltic seal (on the waterfront promenade). Installed in 2013. Gray Baltic seals are rare, endangered species. However, in 2012, in summer, a seal appeared repeatedly on the beach in Zelenogradsk, which the locals dubbed Rurik. In the autumn, the seal swam away, and a granite monument made by Kaliningrad sculptor Valery Kovalyov was erected in his memory.

Promenade
There is a bike path on the boardwalk, free Wi-fi from MTS is announced. Pay attention to the sculpture of the Baltic seal (near the cafe "Veranda"). Approximately in the middle of the promenade in the sea, a pier is chosen, chosen by local fishermen. Great view of the sunsets.

Well-room of Queen Louise (on the boardwalk near the pier). In Zelenogradsk, the name of Queen Louise is often found, so the mineral water pump-room located on the embankment was named after her. Come with your cups (or buy a one-time at a nearby cafe). Mineral water is quite salty.
