The Amber Room - in Riga!

Not many people know that in Riga has its own Amber Room. Strictly speaking, it would be strange if the Baltic States, the birthplace of amber, had no such room. It is located in the Old Town, near the ancient monastery courtyard, next to the oldest stone buildings in the city.
