A Whole Room was Stolen

amberroomThere remains treasure to be discovered! From sunken vessels under the sea to caves and underground caverns, lots of people left this world without their wealth! How much will a thief make off with? Consider the Amber Room. The Amber Room was first created in 1701 as part of the Charottenburg Palace in Berlin, Prussia where it remained until 1716 when it was given by the Prussian King Frederick William I to his all, Tar Peter the Great of Russia. Once it arrived in Russia, the room was expanded and over more than 55 square metres (590 sq ft). During the 18th century, the Amber Room in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg in Russia was decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors. It signified the wealth of the empire and was so valuable that during World War II it was dismantled , only to disappear afterwards. Before its loss, it was considered the "Eighth Wonder of the World."
