A secret passage was found in the Polish museum, which may turn out to be an underground tunnel to the Amber Room. The entrance to it is in the complex of German bunkers in the settlement of Mamerki.

The secret move was found thanks to a professional ground penetrating radar. Hatch was not opened from wartime, and the entrance to it was hidden by the ground. Museum workers had to move a concrete slab weighing 100 kilograms and remove the wood grown there. By July, they intend to open the tunnel completely.

The Amber Room was located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo. In wartime, the Germans transported it to the territory of the present Kaliningrad, and before the city was stormed in 1945, the room disappeared. In 2003, with the financial participation of the German side using Kaliningrad amber room was fully restored. The project was timed to the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg. Now you can also look at it in the walls of the Catherine Palace in Pushkin.
