  • One of the places which arrived in Kaliningrad, are advised to visit the local guides and villagers. To be sure, a special impression on us, he did not. Perhaps influenced by the fact that we visited the Museum of amber for a fourth day in the Kaliningrad region and previous days we have seen a large number of amber and products from it or affected something that generally we indifferentnyh to amber, and presented at the Museum of domestic products masters not quite interesting. On the day of our visit at the Museum exhibition, featuring exhibits, including European masters whose work on execution were interesting enough that even us indifferent to Amber was struck by its beauty and memories of which for a long time still remain in our memory. But in any case, for the overall development of the visit this place will not be superfluous.

  • Kaliningrad amber Museum is located in the old German Fort called Don Tower, this beautiful ancient structure surrounded on all sides by water very well preserved after the storming of Königsberg by the Soviet forces in April 1945 year. Exhibits serve large and small pieces of natural amber mined in the quarry of the Kaliningrad amber plant located on the coast of the Baltic Sea in p. Amber. Special interest tourists cause articles made of amber, which a great many and they are very beautiful and varied.

  • April 30 were in the Museum and have come into the jewelry shop. The husband wanted to please me and granddaughters and snohe. And I bought a lot of bracelet and ring with stone. On horror he palmed nonsense. And the price is more than 15000 rubles nonsense. On the site of the workshop even close, there are no prices. But what we watched on the site, is much cheaper and coarser. Is it a hoax? Don't buy and don't go into the workshop "Prussian honey! Take your nerves and money!

  • An interesting Museum. Better to go without small children. They quickly look and will want to exit, and you can't all take a close look.
