The amber room can be hidden in one of the caves of the Ore Mountains in the south of Saxony near Dresden.
Searches in this place 73-year-old Leonard Blume, 67-year-old Guenther Eckardt and 71-year-old Peter Lor began after they were contacted by a “reliable source”, who said that the legendary room is located there. Lor by means of radar scanned the soil in the Prince’s cave and found cavities resembling a bunker.
On the walls, we found traces of steel cables, which were used to lower the cargo to a depth. According to the georadar, under the caves there is a system of secret tunnels, “says Günter Eckardt.
The first mention of this cave dates back to 1455, but there is no evidence of the Third Reich in the archives. According to the researchers, this indicates that information about it was destroyed.
According to Laur, in favor of the theory that the Amber Room is hidden in the Prince’s cave, is the fact that there was a railway station nearby, in which a train from Koenigsberg was seen in April 1945. He also believes that in the caves can be found the treasure of the last monarch of the German Empire, Kaiser Wilhelm II. Now scientists are looking for funds to continue research.
The Amber Room was created by German masters for the Prussian King Frederick I, and then presented to Peter I. In 1941, German troops stole a room from the Tsarskoye Selo Palace and took it to Koenigsberg.
The amber panels were placed in the Royal Castle in the capital of East Prussia. When the Wehrmacht retreated in the spring of 1945, the room disappeared. Among the possible places of storage of the lost treasure are the Kaliningrad region, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
