The recreation of the Amber Room is an event of immense historical and cultural significance that has attracted broad public attention.
The results of our efforts will be judged by many generations of visitors who come to the Tsarskoye Selo palace to see this “eighth wonder of the world” reborn.
Behind us lay 24 years of endless tests, finds, bitter disappointments and happy discoveries, arguments and patient work, day in, day out.
All those who at any time were involved in this unique restoration project deserve to be recalled with great gratitude.


Boris Igdalov
Director of the Tsarskoselskaya Amber Workshop
