Good probability that it is Kreuzburg / Kreytsburg in modern Russia, 
formerly East Prussia.  You can use 
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm to find it at N54/30 
E20/27.  Today it is known as Slavskoye.

Note that it is possible there is another similarly spelled location in 
other parts of former Prussia which is not identified by ShtetlSeeker.  You 
would need to use http://www.kartenmeister.com to find it but that site is 
currently down for repair.  Check back to it in a couple of weeks just to 
make sure that I am not leading you astray.
