* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amber_Room The Amber Room]] of Tsarskoe Selo, Saint Petersburg. Originally constructed in Prussia, and then presented by William I to UsefulNotes/PeterTheGreat as a gift. During the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII German invasion of Soviet Union]], German soldiers disassembled the Amber Room and relocated it in Könisberg (today Kaliningrad). Since Könisberg has been heavily bombed towards the end of the war, the fate of the room is still unknown and in the 70s the Soviet government decided to construct a replica.
