  • The largest museum in the world dedicated to Amber's. Essential. You come out having learned the origin and the different types of amber but also in having seen a profusion of extraordinary masterpieces. It's the highlight of a visit to Kaliningrad!

  • Here you can find unique products and amber stones, passing through the Museum, you can see how the modern amber jewellery and amber did our ancestors. Personally I admire unique exhibits (and copies) of amber, such as Bowl, ship, chess, vases and much much more. Also very interesting seen amber with plants and insects inside.
