The Amber Room was located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo (summer mansion of Russian rulers near Saint Petersburg). The amber room was covered by more than 55 square meters and included over 6 tones of amber. It is a priceless piece of art, which include gilding carvings, Danish amber panels, beautiful gemstones, mirrors and scultures. This place was used to house a collection of amber-work and Chinese porcelain. There were lots of expensive furniture to protect and displayed this amazing collection. The Amber Room was looted during WW2by Army Group North of Nazi Germany and brought to Konigsberg fortress (destroyed during an Allied bombarding) and then it disappeared. There are many theories what the fate of the Amber Room was.
One of them says that it was damaged by Allied bombs, second claimed that it was replaced from the fortress and maybe hidden somewhere in the town, third – that it was put onto a vessel, but soaked during the relocation. It has also been suggested that the room got misplaced and simply forgotten and maybe it will be discover after many years in some ancient storehouse between some boxes chests, furniture and other furniture or other missing treasures. A lots of people are still looking for this amazing part of art, many of them spent all theirs life on this action, a few of them even passed away. It is believed that the Amber Room is coursed and those who are hardly deciphering its mystery passed away or are bad luck. After many years the Amber Room was reconstructed by Russian artists and shown in 2003 (it was connected with 300th jubilee of Saint Petersburg).
It’s worth to go to the town, go to Catherine castle and view all of its wonderful rooms such as Green Dining Room, Great Hall and other inside and admire all of theirs pictures, sculptures, furniture. The mystery of the Amber Room will stay a amazingpowerful story about lust, wealth, greed and pulchritude. Maybe after some time immeasurable sands of history will show a part of verity about it.
