Pionerskiy (Russian: Пионе́рский pee-uh-NYEHR-skee, German: Neukuhren) is a very small town on the Baltic Coast in Russia's Kaliningrad Oblast. It is very near to Svetlogorsk and has a beach that is very much nicer than the beaches in Svetlogorsk.

Walk along the coastal promenade and see Russian leader Vladimir Putin's less-than-subtle seaside palace.
