The cheese was invented in Tilsit (East Prussia) in the 1700s by Dutch immigrants actually trying to make Gouda.
The recipe spread in many other countries: Austria, Denmark, Germany, Slovenia and Switzerland.
The town of Tilsit is also famous for the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807, signed by Napoleon, Alexander I of Russia and Frederick William III of Prussia. France made peace with Russia (temporarily – until 1812) and gave Russia a free hand in Finland. Tilsit was transferred to Russia from Germany at the end of the Second World War in 1945. Though Tilsit has disappeared off the map, being now a town called "Sovetsk" in the Kaliningrad area of Russia, Tilsit cheese is still made there and called that.
