Makarov Organ Hall
Yantar Hall is a modern multifunctional cultural center located on the Baltic Sea coast in the city of Svetlogorsk. It is built taking into account the latest technologies and principles of entertainment events organization. Yantar Hall is one of the most popular cultural objects of the Kaliningrad Region. Under one roof are located a stunning concert hall, a business center with six well-equipped conference halls, shops, cafes and restaurants, cinema, kid's entertainment center, as well as a branch of the Museum of the World Ocean.
On the Russian shore of the Baltic Sea in a picturesque park is located an amazing MAKAROV ORGAN HALL.
The grand opening of the organ hall took place on May 25, 1995. Especially for the hall, the company "Makarov" and its head Andrey Alexandrovich Makarov ordered an organ in Germany (Saarbrücken) from the company "Hugo Mayer Orgelbau GmbH".
It is the first organ on the Russian coast of the Baltic Sea in Svetlogorsk.
The keyboard and register structure is mechanical: 24 registers, 2 manuals and a pedal.
The history of the Svetlogorsk promenade dates back to the first half of the 19th century. On the resort coast in the city of Rauschen, a structure in the form of a protective rampart at the foot of a sand dune is being designed and created by order of the city authorities. This structure was designed primarily to protect the dune from erosion by the sea storm surf. Well, at the same time, from above on this structure you could walk along the city beach.
This is the brief history of the promenade in Rauschen.
Citizens quickly forgot about the main function of the promenade, and many of them did not even guess. But everyone liked walking directly by the sea. They liked it to such an extent that people went down there from the dune specifically to take pictures.
Thanks to these photos, we can now look into the past and see what happened there. Would any of the current residents or vacationers in Svetlogorsk be able to guess what the promenade in Raushen looked like more than 100 years ago, in 1910?
A little later, the whole structure began to look more respectable. There is an infrastructure for a pleasant and long stay by the water in any weather.
By 1930, the promenade in Rauschen had already acquired some familiar features.
By the way, the wooden bridge under the Germans was a larger structure in size than the concrete structure in Soviet times.
The water tower and the adjacent rotundal building of the water and mud baths were built in Rauschen in 1907-1908 by the architect Otto Walter Kuckuck (German: Otto Walter Kuckuck). The architectural style can be described as German national Romanticism (forms of Art Nouveau mixed with local building traditions). The 25-meter tower became the architectural dominant of the upper, "dune" part of the city.
Next to it, a square was formed, thanks to which the tower began to perform the role traditionally characteristic of the town hall or cathedral.
The tower served to supply Rauschen with water drawn from the springs at the Mill Pond.
In the water and mud baths, you could take warm sea and carbon dioxide baths, mud, electric, light treatment and therapeutic massage were carried out. In the upper part of the water tower, under the helmet-shaped roof, there was an observation deck with a view of the sea (now closed to tourists).
In 1978, a sundial designed by the Svetlogorsk artist and sculptor Nikolai Frolov was installed on the water tower. Currently, the tower and the building of the hospital belong to the Svetlogorsk Central military sanatorium. It has the status of a cultural heritage site of regional significance.
