In 1711, a room made of amber was constructed for Frederick I of Prussia and installed in Charlottenburg Palace. He gifted the room to Peter the Great, Tsar of Russia, to cement relations between them. In 1716, the room was installed, first in St. Petersburg and then moved to the Catherine Palace in Tsarkyoe Selo. In 1941, Germany seized Russia, looted the room, and installed it in Konisberg Castle. Around 1943, when the war was going badly for Germany, it was removed, never to be seen again. This is a story of where it once was. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Tilyard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109755/bk_acx0_109755_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The original Amber Room in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoye Selo near Saint Petersburg is a complete chamber decoration of amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors. Due to its singular beauty, it was sometimes dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World". The original Amber Room represented a joint effort of German and Russian craftsmen. Construction of the Amber Room began in 1701 to 1709 in Prussia. The room was designed by German baroque sculptor Andreas Schlüter and constructed by the Danish amber craftsman Gottfried Wolfram and remained at Charlottenburg Palace until 1716 when it was given by Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm I to his then ally, Tsar Peter the Great of the Russian Empire. In Russia it was expanded and after several renovations, it covered more than 55 square meters and contained over six tons of amber.
