Shou-boy (1991) Alexander_097 RUSame here, in Kaliningrad. There are lots of shops, restaurants etc. which names begin with "König".
Also, a fair amount of citizens use that word as a short name of the town.

Shou-boy (1991) Lateef NOYou have to remember that not all Russians were in favour of communism/socialism and as such they were against new names imposed by the rulers. Historic names have a tendency to stick on people's tongues due to their cultural impact. I mean, good luck trying to make people forget Peter the Great and the city he built! Many people (including me) still use Burma to refer to what they now call Myanmar, as they refuse to recognise the juntaist government.

Also, for any Norwegian, the names Kristiania and Oslo are synonymous, despite the fact that the former name hasn't been used since 1925. This is helped by the fact that the name Kristiania is still in use by many businesses and frequently cited through cultural associations such as Kristiania-bohemen.

Shou-boy (1991) Gamer DEYes, but in almost 70 years of Soviet rule, I think the name "Leningrad" stuck to everyone. 2017-11-14 13:11
Shou-boy (1991) Lateef NOYou are aware that St. Petersburg was the original name for the city until 1914? 2017-11-14 13:03
Shou-boy (1991) Gamer DEThis was one of the last films to be shot in the USSR, as at one point, a character refers to Leningrad as 'Piter', implying that the film was shot in the fall of 1991, after Leningrad was renamed St. Petersburg on September 6, 1991.

Or did this slang name predate this time?...
