The priceless Amber Room of the Tsars was looted and hidden by the Nazis in World War 2 but may now have been found again.
A replica of the Amber Room is located at Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg but now a Russian treasure hunter has claimed to have found the real thing in a Kaliningrad World War 2 bunker that the German High Command would have used in 1945.
The Amber Room of the Tsars - one of the greatest missing treasures of WW2 that was looted by the Nazis during their invasion of the Soviet Union - may have been found.

I'll believe it when it hits the mainstream media. Right now it is some bricks in the ground with no proof of the treasue being there. I do hope it is found, however I'm not getting my hopes up for this article.

I do hope it is found, however I'm not getting my hopes up for this article. I agree Mac. The article started out sounding as though something was discovered and it just needs to be verified, but then further down you read that the guy who thinks he's made the discovery hasn't even broken into the place he believes them to be located. So how did he reach his conclusion? I'd like to see some sort of research of what led him to this particular location.

The Vaults of Al Capone ring any bells with the older members? Could just be nothing. We'll have to wait and see.

I hope they find it but I'm afraid it was probably destroyed by their own bombs during the war (amber burns)

This had always been one of my favourite mysteries since childhood....but it does look like they're counting waaayyyyy too many chickens here. Agree with Mac E that it would be FANTASTIC if it was found...but very, very premature vis-a-vis headlines

I hope he finds it, but this amount of before-the-fact hoopla is just asking for an epic fail.

I've always wanted to see it. Hope the guy finds it.
