  • Because our hotel is closely adjacent to the Park, then walk past was utterly impossible. Park easy, looks natural, but how many are there interesting plants brought from other continents. The owner of amber quarries Moritz Becker spared no expense in development of Pal'mnikena (now Yantarny), but because the old Manor Garden broke new park with an area of 13 Ha, his son brought the rare trees from America and Japan, and the symbol of the Park was the tulip tree, we unfortunately haven't seen it flowering, but say that very nicely. Rare trees in the Park have plaques with information, there is a memorial stone, small sculptures, a swing, a place with beautiful views of the seashore, a gazebo for exit registration of marriage and a path that leads to the promenade. Everything is very clean, simple and environmentally friendly!

  • The park itself is enjoyable and interesting, certainly. But more interesting than the House, which turns out to be the focus of any tourist. The history of his peculiar and curious. The case has been around since ... In the early 17th century at the behest of the elector Georg Wilhelm on the mountain in Pal'mnikene was elevated house hunting. The quality of the material for the construction of the Foundation of glacial boulders were used, obtained from the dismantling of the Castle dilapidated Germau (that in which one time was Amber vicar). The year 1690 in the building housed the coastal administration with amber court cases and zastenkom. Then it was Amber Chamber. There was even a special Dungeon for amber thieves, it was called Kustodi or Klausse, especially deep Chamber called the "bottom". In the year 1703 here visited King of Prussia Frederick I, who decided to regain their hunting grounds in the vicinity of Pal'mnikena and the building of the former hunting lodge. No sooner said than done-restored. But not for long, because the year 1781 building again declined, well preserved only its cellars (this is what the Foundation with a Teutonic ancestry). Radical changes have occurred in the year 1870, when hunting house bought already known us industrialist Maurice Becker. He broke everything, except the Foundation (that seems eternal at all), which created a luxurious mansion. Manor received a fountain and a wonderful park, through which the paved alley, which passed in a staircase leading to the beach. In 1899 year House Becker, to me unknown reason, becomes the property of the Prussian State. Since then, the House gets the name "Schloss-hotel" ("the Castle Hotel") that in our times gave rise to confusion. Historians-goers started to search Pal'mnikene the traces of the Castle, as architectural construction time of the Teutonic order. During the first world war, Schloss-hotel has become a boarding house for the wounded. Unfortunately, the plaque installed in the Park to his patients, only pictures. In the Soviet times the building first housed the command, then a wide variety of organizations. As a result, the building was in disrepair. Then found an investor (rumored to be a descendant of all the same Becker) and all that remained was demolished to the Foundation (for some reason it is not surprising that he survived) and then rebuilt in its present form. The truth behind built a modern building that connects with the restored Schloss-Hotel» transition to level 2 floors.
