Ladushkin (Russian: Ла́душкин), formerly known as Ludwigsort in German (Polish: Ludwinów; Lithuanian: Liudvigsortas), is a town in Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia, located between Kaliningrad and the Polish border. Population: 3,787(2010 Census);[3] 3,796(2002 Census);[6] 3,108(1989 Census).[7]


It was founded as Ludwigsort (lit. Ludwig's/Louis' place) in 1314 and is situated not far from the shores of the Vistula Lagoon and the ruins of the medieval Balga Castle erected by the Teutonic Knights.

After the transfer of northern East Prussia to the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic following World War II, the town was renamed Ladushkin in 1946 after the Red Army soldier Ivan Ladushkin who was killed nearby during the East Prussian Offensive in the previous year.
