Why visit the Amber Museum?

Fun fact: 90% of the world's amber comes from the region around Kaliningrad.

So it should come as no surprise that the city has an entire museum dedicated to this gemstone, which is made from fossilized tree resin.

The museum, located in the remodelled interior of the 19th-century Dohna Tower (named after a Russian war hero), features more than 6,000 exhibitions of amber that has been extracted from deposits in the area.

One of the top things to see here is the second largest piece of amber ever found, which weighs in at a whopping 4.28kg.

You can also buy amber jewellery, an important Kaliningrad export, from the gift shop or the vendors outside.

NOTE: The museum is shut on Mondays
