historyofromanovs:

The original Amber Room [of the Catherine Palace] in 1932 before it was looted and stolen by the Nazis during WWII, an act that sparked a 60-year-hunt for the missing Russian treasures. Crafted entirely out of amber, gold and precious stones, the room made of numerous panels was a masterpiece of baroque art and widely regarded as one of the world’s most important art treasures.
